A combination of alluvial clay and tar mats are seen Wednesday on the shore of Elmer’s Island in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac in Jefferson Parish, La. Tests run by Louisiana State University for state wildlife officials confirmed that the oil matched the biological fingerprint of the oil that spewed from BP’s Macondo well.
