Try these calculations:
Light can penetrate the ocean to a depth of 200 m
Convert From: 200 m
Let's relate that to the length of a football
field. Type the following:
How many football fields would be lit up (by the
light penetrating the ocean) if the fields were
Since there are no absolutes - we could not calculate how far light would penetrate IF there was an oil spill in that part of the ocean or even far away if the oil was carried by the currents to that point, because the oil particles would scatter the light or block it from penetrating through the water. We could not calculate how many plants, animals, and ocean and shore habitats would die - maybe even those on the Endangered Species lists that were near extinction. We could not calculate how many years the damage would continue to destroy life.
