Beachcombers Hunt Plastic, and Data

July 01, 2012 by Daniel McGlynn

That's where buoyant ocean flotsam gets stuck as the tide goes out. As we walk along, he stops and points out how plastic strapping looks a lot like weathered eelgrass. Pincetich isn't your ordinary beachcomber. He's a scientist trying to compile a local data set for a global problem: marine plastic pollution.
