This dataset contains Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) and Landsat/MSS images used to identify the surface oil footprints created by the Ixtoc-I oil spill in 1979. There are two periods of imagery: June 1979-March 1980 is the oil spill period; and Jan. 1981-Dec. 1982 is the reference period. Oil slick surface footprints derived from the images are also included in the dataset. They are either in the format of shapefile or ArcGIS personal geodatabase.
This dataset was used to delineate the surface oil footprint created by the Ixtoc-I oil spill in 1979. Major slicks were also mapped to see the oil trajectory in the Gulf of Mexico.
