Researchers study 'hidden' pollutants in Gulf of Mexico from BP oil spill
More than 100 chemicals known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons exist, but the EPA tracks only 16. A University of Central Florida researcher believes many of these untracked, more toxic compounds remain beneath the seafloor, long after the BP oil spill. A grant will allow him to identify these hidden pollutants in the Gulf of Mexico.
