You are listening to the latest news from Radio Malibu … F-M 99 point 1 K B U U.  ((( time  ))))

The ocean seabed off North America is coated with an “explosion of plastics pollution” … according to samples of mud taken from the in the seafloor in the Santa Barbara channel

The San Diego Union Tribune reports … that the Scripps Institution of Oceanography is finding evidence of a boom in plastics production that occurred worldwide after World War 2.

Consumer products, ranging from bottles to clothing … stored froever in the sediment.

The was carried into the ocean by storm runoff … or in the form of mirorplastics slushed out of sewage treatment plants, and became embedded in sea floor sediment.

Scripps took core samples a few miles from shore, in 1,900-feet of water, at a spot where the physical makeup of the ocean helps to preserve layers of sediment. 

Most of the plastic fragments are smaller than a piece of lint.

Scripps researches remind us that not all plastic descends to the seafloor. 

Much of it floats at or near the surface. 

Scripps scientists helped clarify this point in 2009 when they conducted a landmark study of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an immense area of debris roughly 1,000 miles off San Diego.

This story is reported in the San Diego Union Tribune.

We have a link to it posted at the KBUU Newswire.
