Expedition Measuring Plastic Debris in Atlantic

SEA to conduct expedition dedicated to measuring plastic marine debris in the North Atlantic Ocean

“This trip will explore an area southeast of Bermuda that, it is hypothesized, is an extension of the high plastic pollution region defined by more than 200 previous SEA voyages in the Western North Atlantic. Observations from those trips indicate the area has large concentrations of plastic debris comparable to the region of the Eastern North Pacific Ocean dubbed the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch.”
