University of Washington environmental scientist Julie Masura will discuss how researchers at the Center for Urban Waters are working on creating methods to capture and measure the amount of tiny plastic particles, called microplastics, found in the ocean environment, from the deeper waters to the surface and beach.

Eastside Science Café is held on the second Monday 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.
