Satellite Source: Sentinel 1A
Mode: Interferometric Wide (IW) VV
Resolution: 5x20 meter
Image Date & Time: 05-07-2018 2250 UTC

Confidence: High
Issue Date: 05-08-2018

Region: Atlantic Ocean
Location: 4024'03" N, 7222'18" W
Coverage Area: 9.98 km^2

Remarks:
Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery emanating from the Coimbra 
Tanker Shipwreck. This anomaly is unconfirmed as oil. The feature extended 
west from the source, did a complete loop and continued to extend in the 
west direction. It measured a total length of 17nmi with an average width 
of 0.15nmi and appeared unnatural compared to its surroundings. Winds 
were from the East at 10kts, which is consistent with the orientation 
of the anomaly.

Uncertainties:
No uncertainties as this is a repeat leak source.
