SEA Research Professor Co-Authors New Study in Science

SEA Semester

New study in Science calculates amount of plastic waste going into the ocean
8 million metric tons of plastic enter the oceans per year

Woods Hole, MA – Millions of tiny bits of plastic swirl around the ocean, carried far offshore by ocean currents and with few clues about their origin.  It has long been suspected that much of this plastic started out as trash on land, but exactly how much un-captured plastic waste is making its way from land to ocean has been a decades-long guessing game. Now, a team of researchers working at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) at University of California, Santa Barbara, has put a number on the global problem.
