By combining data from multiple cameras of JPL's MISR instrument on NASA's Terra satellite, scientists gain new perspectives on the spread of oil into Louisiana’s fragile wetlands.
JPL's Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer instrument has completed its initial assessment of the Gulf oil spill.
This updated video shows a series of images that provide a space-based view of the burning oil rig and the ensuing oil spill, now with additional footage through July 14.
A new image from NASA's Terra spacecraft shows oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill lapping at the mouth of the Mississippi River delta.
Scientists are using NASA satellite data to keep a close eye on a powerful current in the Gulf of Mexico that could carry the Gulf oil spill into the Atlantic.
New Gulf oil spill images from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer instrument on NASA's Terra spacecraft paint dramatic portraits of different aspects of the spill.
Viewing the Gulf of Mexico oil spill from 438 miles (705 km) away can be quite different from seeing it in person. For NASA, a satellite view of the oil spill can be very informative.
NASA Langley scientists made research flights over the Gulf of Mexico to investigate uses of satellites for monitoring the thickness and dispersal of oil spills and the oil's impact on marine life.
NASA has mobilized its remote-sensing assets to help assess the spread and impact of the Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico at the request of U.S. disaster response agencies.
NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites are helping the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) keep tabs on the extent of the recent Gulf oil spill with satellite images from time to time.
Scientists recently found black gold bubbling up from an otherwise undistinguished mass of ocean imagery.
