Map and Estimates of the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico - Interactive Map - NYTimes.com: "The “estimated extent” of the oil slick is an estimate by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of where oil is mostly likely to go based on wind and ocean current forecasts, as well as analysis of aerial photography and satellite imagery. The “surveyed extent” show areas where oil was visible on the surface of the water during aerial surveys of the Gulf. The surveyed extents are not available every day and may be incomplete on some days because poor weather conditions prevented observation in some areas."
