Capturing and Counting Tiny Bits of Plastic Debris in Puget Sound
Nov. 4, 2010 at Harmon Brewery in Tacoma

UW Tacoma researcher Julie Masura discusses the ecological threat of microplastics - tiny fragments of plastic that accumulate in the environment - and just how much there really is floating in our oceans.
