Satellite Source: Landsat 7
Mode: Multispectral
Resolution: 30 meter
Image Date & Time: 06-16-2018 1533 UTC

Confidence: High
Issue Date: 06-16-2018

Region: Atlantic Ocean
Location: 4024'03" N, 7222'13" W
Coverage Area: 0.56 km^2

Remarks:
Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil. The anomaly is believed to be an oil slick since it was connected 
to the location of the Coimbra shipwreck. The slick stretched for approximately 
1.2 nm south of the wreck site and appeared silvery/white due to sunglint.
 The orientation of the slick agreed with model ocean currents for the 
area. Although there were gaps in the satellite image due to a satellite 
scanning error, it is believed that the slick was continuous and extended 
through the gaps in the image,

Uncertainties:
Since the anomaly is connected to the location of a repeat leak source
and has the appearance of oil in sunglint, there is no uncertainty that 
the anomaly is oil.
