The Public Lab nonprofit has created this wiki page and will add information on the Shell Spill in the Gulf of Mexico as it becomes available. Public Lab is part of the Gulf Monitoring Consortium, an alliance launched after the BP Disaster of 2010. Groups in the Consortium and partners of the Consortium have been posting information as it becomes available. Currently, because of the Shell Spill location 97 miles off the shore of Louisiana, the Public Lab non-profit has decided not to directly involve in aerial monitoring in response, however we support the efforts of our partners and community members in exploring this, and other issues further.
