Dear Collegues,

and it happend again:  "The sinking of the leaking tanker "Prestige"off Spain
on 19. Nov 2002 triggered what could become one of the world's worst oil

However: ...experts say the distance to the coast and warmth of the water may
control the ecological devastation... (ENN, 11/20/2002).

Well this may attribute to the surface. But what happens in the deep-sea?

I am currently preparing an article for the German newspaper DIE ZEIT und would
urgently need more information on deep-sea oil -bacteria and - degradation.

I appreciate very much your help and information in advance.
