Date: 04/30/14 7:00 PM ET / 4:00 PM PT - 04/30/14 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT
You may have seen or read about the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch” on the news or in various places around the Internet, but have you ever wondered what that actually means? What is marine debris and what are its effects on the marine environment? Dr. Erik Zettler, oceanography professor with the Sea Education Association, will walk us through life in “The Plastisphere”, microbial communities calling microplastics their home. He’ll also do some plastic pollution myth-busting!
