I read in a UT article that the two samples were collected in the Del Mar area at 5:00pm and 5:30pm. The smell had dissipated by then, as reported by the sample collector. It's unfortunate that the opportunity to analyze the air when the odor was present was lost by this delay. I think the important story now is what will be set up or what will the process be in the future when something like this happens again? I smelled the odor around 2pm and it was extremely strong in my neighborhood. It was a petroleum/fuel product odor, not hydrogen sulfide like which can occur with rotting seaweed.
