Summary:
"In the context of the BP Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, submerged oil refers to near shore oil which has picked up sediments and become heavier than water and sunk. Without the addition of these sediments, extensive laboratory study has shown that this particular oil will not sink. The oil can be visible to the naked eye, but is not always easy to locate as it may be covered by sand and  Read more...

Abstract:

"In the context of the BP Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, submerged oil refers to near shore oil which has picked up sediments and become heavier than water and sunk. Without the addition of these sediments, extensive laboratory study has shown that this particular oil will not sink. The oil can be visible to the naked eye, but is not always easy to locate as it may be covered by sand and sediment, or in deeper water. Although it is common to use the terms submerged and subsurface interchangeably, they are actually distinct and result from very different physical and chemical processes"--Page [1].
