400-408 – • Gautam Naik (WSJ, 01/10/2012) How Microbes Teamed to Clean Gulf: Scientists Studied 52 Species of Bacteria and Water Currents to Explain Demise of Oil and Gas Plume. God's "washing machine?"
// The model showed that the topography in the Gulf had played a vital role. Because the Gulf is bounded on three sides by land—north, east and west—the water currents don't flow in a single direction as in a river. Instead, the water sloshes around, back and forth, as if it were trapped in a washing machine.
An initial population of bacteria encountered the spill near the BP well, its population grew, and then it was swept away by the ocean currents. But when the water circled back—that washing-machine effect—it was already loaded with these hungry bacteria, which immediately went on the attack again, mopping up another round of hydrocarbons. These repeated forays over the BP well, by the ever-growing bacterial populations, sped up the rate at which the methane and offshore oil got devoured. //
