Get Involved: The Science of Marine Debris

Readers! I have exciting news. The organization I work for, COSEE-OS (or, Center for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence – Ocean Systems) is hosting a webinar series at the end of this month. Guess what we’re talking about?

Yes, that’s right: marine debris!! Here are two reasons why you might consider signing up:

  • This webinar will feature three prominent research scientists doing work in this field right now – they’re looking at the microscopic life making a home on marine microplastics. They’re using computer models to predict trajectories of debris in the ocean and they’re telling stories about debris jettisoned out to see after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake (and subsequent tsunami) in Japan.
  • Marine debris vs. plastic pollution: this is the constant debate. Which term is “right”? As it turns out, both are…but don’t let me try to convince you. Join in the webinar fun and find out for yourselves.

In short, this is your chance to hear from the scientists themselves about this issue and what marine debris is doing to our oceans.

Click here to read all about it and sign up! Hope to “see” you there. 🙂
