Plastic waste in the Great Lakes

This month Professor Sherri Mason of the Chemistry Department of the State University of New York at Fredonia will be leading a team of students on an Environmental Sciences Field Study course which she describes as the first ever survey of plastic pollution in the Great Lakes.

The survey is being undertaken through a partnership with the 5 Gyres Institute.

There is no GallonDaily prize for guessing what this survey will find but we will bring you survey results as soon as they are brought to our attention.

Details of the project, which will be undertaken from the deck of the tallship Flagship Niagara, based in Erie, Pennsylvania, can be found at http://ww2.fredonia.edu/news/BrowseallNews/tabid/1101/ctl/ArticleView/mid/1878/articleId/3619/language/en-US/Dr_Sherri_Mason_to_lead_first-ever_Great_Lakes_plastic_pollution_survey.aspx
