Brandes’ talk is titled, “Walking on Water: Our Plastic Oceans.”

Posted by carriagetradepr on May 11, 2014

Skidaway Island, Ga. – University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Jay Brandes will present an “Evening @ Skidaway” reception and lecture on Monday, May 19, on the campus of Skidaway Institute. The program will be an informative and visual detail on the problem of debris in the ocean. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a reception at the McGowan Library on the Skidaway Institute campus to be followed by the lecture at 7:15 p.m.

 

Brandes’ talk is titled, “Walking on Water: Our Plastic Oceans.” Brandes will examine the growing issue of plastic and other trash and debris in our oceans. Most recently, floating debris patches in the search area hindered the search for the missing Malaysian airliner. Oceans around the world contain vast garbage patches within their centers. Marine debris on local beaches ranges from unsightly to unhealthy, despite the volunteer efforts to clean up the coasts. Brandes will profile the issue and discuss efforts that can lead to a cleaner ocean.

 

The program is open to the public and admission is free.

 

An “Evening @ Skidaway” is sponsored by the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and the Associates of Skidaway Institute.
