Satellite Source: Sentinel 1A
Mode: Interferometric Wide (IW) VV
Resolution: 5x20 meter
Image Date & Time: 06-12-2018 2250 UTC

Confidence: High
Issue Date: 06-13-2018

Region: Atlantic Ocean
Location: 4024'03" N, 7222'13" W
Coverage Area: 0.60 km^2

Remarks:
Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil. The anomaly was oriented in a SW to NE fashion very near a repeat 
leak point source, the sunken Coimbra Tanker, and extended about 1.25 
NM long which was consistent with winds out of the SW at 10 KT at the 
time of the image. At its widest the anomaly measured about .10 NM. Although 
the anomaly appeared diffuse relative to its background, the fact that 
it appeared to originate from a repeat leak allows us to have a HIGH confidence 
in this assessment.

Uncertainties:
There are no uncertainties.
