Remarks:
Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil. A very narrow slick of thick oil extended 0.3 nm to the southwest 
of the Coimbra tanker shipwreck. Surface winds were out of the northwest 
at 10 knots at the time of the image and skies were clear.

Uncertainties:
The Coimbra tanker shipwreck is a known leak source so there are no uncertainties.
