GULF ISLANDS NATIONAL SEASHORE, Fla. (AP) - A specialized dive team from the National Park Service is looking for lingering globs of oil that washed ashore four years ago during the massive BP oil spill.

The oil washed up on Pensacola Beach in June of 2010. The Pensacola News Journal (https://on.pnj.com/1igTd1l ) reports that a team of underwater archeologists are checking for oil in spots identified through sonar. They are checking to see if oil is trapped in those areas.

Oil washed ashore on Pensacola Beach after the BP’s Deepwater Horizon site exploded off the Louisiana coast in April 2010.
