PAH Fingerprint of Deepwater Horizon Oil

PAH Distributions in Deepwater Horizon Riser oil and surface slicks of the Gulf of Mexico

Our PAH analyses suggests that there is a "fingerprint" of the PAHs from the Deepwater Horzion riser oil (see image). We're presently working on a paper in which we document the presence of that fingerprint in zooplankton collected from the Gulf of Mexico in September 2010.
