The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has launched a federal Web site meant to answer questions about the response to the B-P Gulf oil spill. Agency officials say it's designed as a one-stop shop for detailed near-real-time information about the response to the Deepwater Horizon incident, incorporating data from the various agencies that are working together to tackle the spill. Originally designed for responders, who make operational decisions regarding the disaster, the web site integrates the latest data on the oil spill's trajectory, fishery closed areas, wildlife and Gulf Coast resources into one customizable interactive map. The web site is http://www.GeoPlatform.gov/gulfresponse.
The federal Flow Rate Technical Group, a scientific team led by Secretary of Energy Steven Chu has been bringing together several scientific methodologies to develop updated estimates of how much oil is flowing from BP's leaking oil well in the Gulf of Mexico. The updated estimate, which will bring together the ongoing work of scientists and engineers from the federal government, as well as universities, and research institutions, will be of how much oil has been flowing since the riser was cut on June 3rd. Three of the teams analyzed broad sets of technical data from the air, on the surface and coast, and under water, and plugged the bits and pieces into computer models in order to formulate their revised estimates. There's a web site to learn more about the response effort. It's www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com.
For the past 11 years, Shahzad Aslam has owned the BP station at 7605 Georgia Ave. NW. Since the oil spill, he claims to have lost 40 percent of his gas sales.
