Satellite Source: Landsat 8
Mode: Multispectral
Resolution: 30 meter
Image Date & Time: 06-17-2018 1526 UTC

Confidence: High
Issue Date: 06-17-2018

Region: Atlantic Ocean
Location: 4024'03" N, 7222'13" W
Coverage Area: 4.01 km^2

Remarks:
Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil, but it is believed to be an oil slick that emanated from the site 
of the Coimbra tanker wreck located south of Long Island, NY since the 
slick was directly connected to that location. The curvilinear slick measured 
6 nm long. Winds were light and variable at the time of the image; model 
currents were also light.

Uncertainties:
Due to the presence of natural features on the ocean surface at the southern 
end of the slick, we are unable to determine a more precise areal extent 
of the slick.
