Gulf Satellite Photos

A recent photo-like image of the Gulf from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite. Leaked oil appears as a maze of silvery-gray ribbons. Twice-daily images of the Gulf of Mexico are available from the MODIS Rapid Response Team in additional resolutions and formats, including a georeferenced version that can be used in Google Earth.
