Researchers in the Gulf of Mexico “are discovering a substantial layer of oily sediment stretching for dozens of miles in all directions,” according to the report Scientists Find Thick Layer Of Oil On Sea Floor airing on the radio program All Things Considered at 7 p.m. EDT.
This suggests that “a lot” of the oil “has settled to the sea floor” according to the report.
