Here is another link to data from opendata.socrata.com examining the chemicals in air samples taken in Louisiana after the BP oil spill. The larger amounts are shown in dark blue, but notice that there are gray bars near the axis that also indicate the presence of chemicals. Some amounts were so small that they don’t appear on this chart.

This is a short wrap on the Fairfax County oil spill prepared for AU’s media boot camp.
The worst oil spill in 10 years has forced some Fairfax County residents from their homes and spilled over one hundred thousand gallons into the Potomac River. Zoe Sullivan has more.
A pipeline rupture near Sugarland Run Creek has dumped over three-hundred thousand gallons of oil into the area. Officials warn that toxic fumes are one resulting hazard.
County Fire Chief Glenn Gaines warned residents:
Stay away from it. Stay in your home. Preferably, we’d like you to keep your doors closed. (:06)
Over a hundred federal and local workers are scrambling to clean up the oil. County Water officials are protecting the area’s drinking supply. A state of emergency has been declared, and some residents have left their homes to escape toxic fumes. Dozens of animals have also been affected.
