The nature of the source samples changed throughout this duration of release, as did the degree of weathering of the oil sampled from the water surface and the shoreline during this period, and even after the source was secured. S. Coast Guard found that their standard testing protocols for forensic fingerprinting were inadequate for being able to precisely identify samples that had been collected at various stages in the release and at various stages of weathering and attenuation (Aten, 2015).
Many types of physical environmental data are ephemeral in nature so that a sampling plan for these data must be designed very early into the spill to capture essential information. The key to the design of an appropriate data collection program to support sampling for a forensic study, particularly in the case of a “mystery spill,” is to quickly determine the questions that need to be answered. Example questions are: Where did the oil come from? When did the spill occur? What was the transport pathway?
