SEA to conduct expedition dedicated to measuring plastic marine debris in the North Atlantic Ocean
excerpt from above:
Quote:
(Woods Hole, Mass.) -- Sea Education Association (SEA) is preparing to conduct the first-ever research expedition dedicated solely to examining the accumulation of plastic marine debris in the North Atlantic Ocean.
The expedition, scheduled to begin in June, will expand upon a 20-year data set previously collected by SEA that reveals a region of extensive plastic pollution in a narrow latitude band in the western North Atlantic Ocean.
