After reading the following, I'm sure everyone will also reach the same logical conclusion as I have based on the evidence, facts and truth I'm presenting here. All illustrations are taken directly from the referenced reports cited below.

THE BILOXI DOME

At Latitude 28/40/00 N and Longitude 88/26/00 W [decimal Latitude 28.6666 Longitude -88.4333] in the Gulf of Mexico is an ancient volcanic crater. It's geographically classified as an undersea hill and the common name given to it is the Biloxi Dome. It's located approximately 7 miles or about 12 kilometers southwest from the BP Deepwater Horizon well [Latitude 28/44/17 N Longitude 88/21/57 W].

In this satellite picture, the Biloxi Dome is at the center of the picture and looks like a shoe or an oblong shaped rim of a volcano:

In this satellite image, the BP Deepwater Horizon well is marked in white and is positioned northeast of the Biloxi Dome crater:

NOAA Underwater Joint Analysis Group Study

NOAA (National Oceanographic and Aeronautical Administration) has now released their underwater study, the Joint Analysis Group (JAG) Review, which examined subsurface oil in and around the BP Deepwater Horizon well #1 - located in Mississippi Canyon block 252 - from May 19 to June 19, 2010.

Their report presented data collected by five research vessels; the R/V Brooks McCall, R/V Ocean Veritas, R/V Walton Smith, R/V Thomas Jefferson, and R/V Gordon Gunter.

They used a scientific method called Fluorometry to measure for underwater oil. Fluorescence Spectroscopy - a/k/a Fluorometry or Spectrofluorometry - is a type of electromagnetic spectroscopy which analyzes fluorescence. It usually utilizes a beam of ultraviolet light that excites the electrons in molecules of certain compounds and causes them to emit light of a lower energy, such as visible light. For more information on how this works, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluorescence_spectroscopy.

Conclusions made from their report stated that their Fluorometry measurements showed the presence of oil at a depth between 1000 and 1300 meters. They also concluded that active oil seeps were mapped at about 12 kilometers southwest of the BP Deepwater Horizon wellhead.

As I stated above, the Biloxi Dome is located approximately 12 kilometers southwest of the BP Deepwater Horizon well. This means that NOAA and the Joint Analysis Group positively identified the Biloxi Dome to be the source of the active oil leaks.

SEAFLOOR LEAKS AT BILOXI DOME

Below is a closeup of the leaks from May 19 through June 19 at the (now identified) Biloxi Dome. There are seven major leaks shown as purple colored cylinders from the JAG report:

Image

Included within the NOAA Interim Project Mission Report June 3-11, 2010 aboard NOAA's Research Vessel, the R/V Thomas Jefferson, is a 3D rendering of the Biloxi Dome leaks showing greater detail. At the time, they did not report the location of these major ocean floor leaks. If you look closely at the 3D rendering, you can easily see it shows the seven purple cylinders denoting the identified leaks along the rim of the Biloxi Dome crater.

DISTANCES OF THE OIL LEAKS TO DEEPWATER HORIZON

Using the identified sea floor leaks in the Biloxi Dome crater rim along with the BP Deepwater Wellhead position, and then overlaying that NOAA map with Google Earth, the following image reveals a very clear and startling picture:

Map created by Alexander Higgins

Each verified oil leak along the crater rim of the Biloxi Dome is tagged with numbers 3 through 9. Here are the calculated distances between each identified leak and BP's Deepwater Horizon well #1 along with the Latitude and Longitude locations of each oil leak. Credit goes to Alexander Higgins for the calculations:

No. / Latitude / Longitude / Kilometer distance / Mileage distance
#3 / 28°40’38.71″N / -88°24’51.74″W / 08.26 km from BP Well / 5.13 miles from BP Well
#4 / 28°40’14.87″N / -88°24’34.36″W / 08.63 km from BP Well / 5.36 miles from BP Well
#5 / 28°41’39.42″N / -88°29’05.44″W / 12.59 km from BP Well / 7.82 miles from BP Well
#6 / 28°41’00.14″N / -88°28’33.90″W / 12.36 km from BP Well / 7.68 miles from BP Well
#7 / 28°40’51.22″N / -88°27’04.30″W / 10.49 km from BP Well / 6.51 miles from BP Well
#8 / 28°40’19.30″N / -88°28’04.34″W / 12.38 km from BP Well / 7.69 miles from BP Well
#9 / 28°39’28.11″N / -88°27’24.13″W / 12.59 km From BP Well / 7.82 miles from BP Well

The average distance between all seven oil leaks and the Deepwater Horizon well is 6.8 miles or 11 kilometers.

CONCLUSIONS AND OBSERVATIONS

I have been repeatedly posting on other forums and have stated on Free Association Radio hosted by Robert Phoenix that the cause of the major oil plume in the Gulf of Mexico was from a source 7-10 miles away from the well that exploded the Deepwater Horizon rig. My estimated distance was short by 2/10ths of a mile.

The major oil leak source that is creating enormous undersea lakes of oil a/k/a oil plumes - which BP then mixes Corexit into - is the ancient seabed Gulf of Mexico volcanic crater commonly called the Biloxi Dome.

The recent July capping and pressure testing of BP Deepwater Horizon well #1 did NOT cause the Biloxi Dome leaks as they were verified between May 19 and June 19 while the Deepwater Horizon well was still leaking oil.


There is a calculated and deliberate cover-up regarding the facts I have presented above. Not a single talking head on TV nor a single newspaper has dared to report the truth... and that truth is more than obvious to anyone who would have bothered to read the latest JAG Report. Apparently, they can neither read nor do they have any investigative reporters on their payrolls. That includes over 100 days of erroneous, misleading, and downright lying statements made from the DC Executive Mansion as well as the US Coast Guard.

Many thanks for this information. Very important, particularly since now everyone is looking the other way. I live in east central Florida coast. I have reason to believe that the air here is toxic, and we did have tars balls hit the beaches around July 8th. People are getting sick. This is bad news. Keep up the great reporting!

What your saying, since the dome is so far from the DWH, is that the oil leaks from the dome has nothing to do with the DWH but BP is pumping Corexit into the dome leaks anyway? Why would they do that?

Your saying BP was pumping Corexit into their own DWH gusher AND the other dome leaks 7-10 miles away which has nothing to do with any of BP's drilling operations, and continue to do so at the dome leaks? Is that right?

I never said "the oil leaks from the dome has nothing to do with the DWH" (Deepwater Horizon). I also never said that the Biloxi Dome "has nothing to do with any of BP's drilling operations". This article establishes the fact that the Biloxi Dome leaks exist and have been verified and confirmed by NOAA and the other researchers who authored the Task Group report I cited.

As for DWH being connected with the Biloxi crater Dome, that's the subject of an upcoming post.

Except that the water at depth moves in the opposite direction--to the southwest and south (at fairly consistent 20-30 cm/s rates). The plume wouldn't move against the current.

The domes are not volcanoes. They're salt formations, formed by halite, more ductile than the clastic sedimentary rock around them, flowing up through heavier formations toward the sea floor. The Gulf of Mexico is not a site of volcanic activity. (There are fragments of an ancient spreading ridge to the south and west, but that's not the kind of volcano you're talking about.)

Those are seeps--not blowouts. Annually, about 1 Exxon Valdez worth of petroleum leaks naturally into the gulf across the entire shelf. Oil and gas is less dense than the rock it's trapped in, and will leak its way to the surface if it can--i.e., if it's not trapped by an impermeable layer, like crystalline salt. Very often domes intersect oil-rich rock layers and have commonly been rewarding areas for oil exploration.

Why did you edit the language of the NOAA report and substitute "oil leaks" for the original "natural seeps"?

Because reality is truth.

Main Entry: seep
Function: intransitive verb
1 : to flow or pass slowly through fine pores or small openings : ooze <water seeped in through a crack>
2 a : to enter or penetrate slowly <fear of nuclear war had seeped into the national consciousness — Tip O'Neill

Main Entry: leak
Function: verb
1 a : to enter or escape through an opening usually by a fault or mistake <fumes leak in> b : to let a substance or light in or out through an opening
2 a : to become known despite efforts at concealment <confidential information leaked out> b : to be the source of an information.

My first thought is you work for BP. I understand that oil seeps. What I will never agree with is the seeps found at Biloxi dome just happened to begin after a well blows up in the vicinity. You make a great case for writing mandates that must include Flueroscence spectroscopy prior to permitting new well sights.

Yes, there are many "salt formations" in the Gulf of Mexico. But the Biloxi Dome is specifically not classified by the US Military or any Federal Geological (USGS) survey since 1945 as a salt formation.

As for the the Gulf of Mexico ocean not being a "site of volcanic activity", you need also to look at the physical differences between the old volcanic craters and the salt formations in the surveys. While they are not recent past sites of volcanic activity, the US military surveys explicitly show that there has been passive volcanic activity in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Biloxi Dome is not classified anywhere as a salt dome or salt formation by any recognized government or scientific organization. It has a unique volcanic dual conical shape and geologic structure which is why the Federal geological surveys did and do not classify it as a salt formation.

How much are you being paid to spread this false propaganda about everything in the Gulf that rises from the sea floor being a salt formation? Who's your boss... DC banksters/government or a well know corporation chartered by DC?

This oil is not seeping. See my dictionary definitions above for the words "seep" and "leak".

If you would bother to thoroughly read what the article said, you would plainly know that the "seeps" were merely officially recognized only after the DWH well disaster. I never stated that the "seeps" BEGAN after April 22... only that NOAA, as evidenced by their report, ACKNOWLEDGED those "seeps" after the DWH disaster on April 20.

Thank you for you insight regarding the need for Fluorospectroscopic tests being a needed requirement from now on before any new well permits are issued. Your point is exceptionally valid.

Technology that is not publicly known can stop any of these leaks within minutes. Because of that, everyone should be questioning why the powers that be in this greedy and corrupt world are not abating this Gulf toxic disaster with their known technologies derived from Nicoli Tesla over 70 years ago. The world is made of 99% sheeple who follow whatever they're told as long as they can eat, sleep and shit without any interference. I'm sorry for the crude analogy, but that's what mindless and Spiritless humans have become for the most part.

Tell us about these technologies so we the people will know what you, and the people keeping them secret know. :)
