AVIRIS extensively mapped the region affected by the spill during 456 flights conducted between May 6 and October 4, 2010, at the request of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.|
This map shows the 456 AVIRIS scenes that were collected as part of
the scientific response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf
Data was acquired from May 6 through October 4, 2010.
