g. DESCRIPTION: PER NRC "REMARKS: POSSIBLE, UNCONFIRMED OIL WAS OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE POSSIBLE OIL SPANNED AN AREA APPROXIMATELY 3.5NM LONG AND 2NM WIDE. THE AREA APPEARED DARK IN SATELLITE IMAGERY WITH SOME POSSIBLE FEATHERING FEATURES. THE AREA OF POSSIBLE OIL LIKELY EMANATED FROM A VESSEL LOCATED OFF THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA COAST. WINDS AT THE TIME OF THE SATELLITE IMAGERY WERE 10KTS FROM THE W, WHICH ROUGHLY ALIGNS WITH THE FEATHERING FEATURES. UNCERTAINTIES: THE AREA DID NOT EXHIBIT THE CLASSIC BILGE DUMP SIGNATURE IN SATELLITE IMAGERY AND DID NOT WIDEN WITH DISTANCE. SOME OF THE EDGES WERE ALSO DIFFUSE IN SPOTS. IT IS UNCLEAR WHETHER THE AREA IS POSSIBLE OIL OR RELATED TO FISHING ACTIVITY. DUE TO THESE FACTORS, THE CONFIDENCE LEVEL WAS HELD TO MEDIUM."
