Satellite Source: Sentinel 1A
Mode: Interferometric Wide (IW) VV
Resolution: 5x20 meter
Image Date & Time: 06-17-2018 1022 UTC

Confidence: Medium
Issue Date: 06-17-2018

Region: Atlantic Ocean
Location: 1851'09" N, 6648'23" W
Coverage Area: 16.52 km^2

Remarks:
Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil. The leading end of the segmented anomaly was attached to an object 
believed to be a ship that appeared to be traveling in the direction of 
San Juan, PR. The linear anomaly spanned a length of 34.4 nm, had a moderate 
contrast to the surroundings in portions and a diffuse contrast in others.
 Winds were from the ESE at 10-15 kts at the time of the image.

Uncertainties:
Confidence that the anomaly is oil is only Medium given that it both lacked 
a strong contrast to its surroundings and the trailing sections did not 
widen with distance.
