The Galveston Spill Specifics
As you remember back in March 2014, over 168,000 gallons of thick residual oil into the bay after a container ship collided with a fuel tanker. The effects of the oil spill were catastrophic not only for the workers on those ships, but the people living near Galveston Bay, and the wildlife that inhabits those areas.
But Actually How Bad Was The Spill?
During the first week of the spill, responders and emergency crew were holding their breath, at a loss to say how bad the situation actually was. Much depended on how the oil and water currents mixed. Would the oil float on the surface? Would it sink, potentially smothering valuable oyster beds below? Would it disperse in deeper waters? Would currents push it back into the ecologically-rich estuaries?
