Marine Debris Survey at the Pacific Northwest

 
March 2014 Research Overview
 

On March 24, 2014, we went to Ocean Shores (0.5 mile south of the Elk Creek River) for another marine debris research.

We also measured the intensity of radiation at the beach of Ocean Shores.
The detected values of background (atmospheric air) and seaweeds were lower than the average amount of spontaneous emissions of radiation. The general conditions of the beach were not out of the ordinary and we did not see any unusual debris washed ashore.

The arrival situation will give us a view of the overall situation of Asian originated marine debris traveling along with the Kuroshio (also known as Black Current) and some of them are reaching to the beaches at the Pacific Northwest.
