scan­ning the surf for oil sheens, tar balls and other trou­ble

Austin American-Statesman - - FRONT PAGE -

Twice daily, of­fi­cials are sur­vey­ing the Texas coast­line, look­ing for pos­si­ble signs of oil from BP’s Deep­wa­ter Hori­zon leak. U.S. Coast Guard Ma­rine Sci­ence Tech­ni­cian 3rd Class Joseph Byrne looks out a heli­copter win­dow dur­ing an aerial sur­vey Wed­nes­day, east of Galve­ston. Tar balls found on veg­e­ta­tion that had washed up on a Galve­ston beach last week have been con­firmed as be­ing from the Deep­wa­ter spill.
