Capturing & Counting Tiny Plastic Debris in Puget Sound at Queen Anne Science Café
Julie Masura, Dept. of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, UW Tacoma
Microplastics are a major problem for ocean environments, and researchers at Tacoma’s Center for Urban Waters have created methods for capturing and measuring their amounts. At the October Queen Anne Science Café, join UW Tacoma’s Julie Masura to explore what she and her colleagues have learned from a three year study of small plastics bits floating around bays in the Puget Sound.

Queen Anne Science Café is held on the first Tuesday of each month. Did you miss a café and want to hear the discussion? Most Science Cafés are recorded by KCTS 9 and are available for online viewing. Queen Anne Science Cafés take place at T.S. McHugh's and are presented in partnership with Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9.
