Gulf Oil Spill Makes Landfall. Where Next?

The University of Wisconsin has a great site that features sectorized MODIS (  ) imagery.  See that blob off of the coast of Louisiana?  That is the oil spill.  A closeup showing the massive area the oil spill is encompassing.

The forecast model from the Environmental Modeling Center at the National Weather Service show how the Loop Current will play a substantial role in the movement of the oil spill this week taking the oil spill into the Florida Keys.

Dr. Jeff Master at wunderground has a great post on the spill, its impacts and the forecast for where the spill is heading.  http://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/article.html
