The source of the massive oil spill affecting Brazil remains unclear, but unusual tanker activity raises questions.
For months now, oil has been washing up on the beaches of northeast Brazil. Government officials, scientists and non-governmental organizations around the world — including SkyTruth — have been trying to identify the source of the pollution; so far, unsuccessfully. SkyTruth analyst Bjorn Bergman recently decided to take a look at AIS ship-tracking data in the region and found some unusual behavior from oil tankers passing through the area.
The cause of the massive oil spill plaguing Brazil’s beaches is still unknown, but monitoring reveals a potential new bilge dumping incident
We still haven’t found the cause of the massive oil spill that’s been plaguing Brazil’s beaches since early September. But SkyTruth’s continued surveillance of the coast of northeastern Brazil, in response to one of the country’s worst oil-related environmental disasters ever, has uncovered what appears to be another previously unreported bilge dumping incident off the coast of Joao Pessoa in the state of Paraiba.
SkyTruth identified the bulk carrier Lumoso Aman as the likely polluter via AIS and satellite imagery.
On October 10, 2019, SkyTruth discovered yet another likely bilge dumping incident in Southeast Asian waters. We identified the potential culprit as the Lumoso Aman, a bulk cargo carrier, through AIS (Automatic Identification System) broadcasts.
