Ocean plastics: sources, impacts, and alternatives

VIMS researchers Kirk Havens and Rob Hale join forces to explore pollution of the ocean by plastics. Havens, who directs the Marine Debris program at VIMS, will focus on the source of ocean plastics both the large items that catch public attention and a floating soup of microplastics and showcase his work to develop biodegradable alternatives. Hale, an environmental chemist, will describe how ocean plastics can potentially introduce toxic chemicals into the marine food web.

The lecture is the February installment of the After Hours lecture series for 2016.
