A local ABC News station has reported that two monster tarballs weighing one ton each have been found in Florida. The reports says: *two one-ton tarballs found south of Perdido Pass. The crew of the life boat — “Sailfish” — which is a Vessel of Opportunity — discovered them. A petty officer with the US Coast Guard took a picture on Saturday.
Just my uneducated unscientific query, but doesn’t that maybe mean they’re too big to have formed so quickly from this present oil episode? Could they not have come from asphaltic volcano deposits, either at Deepwater Horizon well or nearby or even other location thereby proving the fragile-prone-to-cracking-nature of the sea floor in the Northern Gulf of Mexico drilling zone?
