NOAA Backs Marine Debris Removal/Research

understanding of how microplastics interact with seafood species. Projects awarded through this grant competition will improve our understanding of the ecological risks associated with marine debris as well as the fate and transport of marine debris in nearshore, coastal environments. Arizona State University ($195,837) will use a risk assessment framework to quantify microplastics (plastic pieces <5mm in size) in water, sediment and bivalves at three sites in American Samoa, and assess the types and concentrations of organic contaminants in those microplastics.   The University

MacArtney Shows Sensorbots at Ocean Business

technology at Ocean Business 2013, held early April in Southampton, U.K. As human understanding and appreciation of the oceans rapidly increases, so does the demand for equipment capable of remotely monitoring this inhospitable and underexplored ecosystem. For this purpose, scientists at the Arizona State University have developed Sensorbots - a potentially transformative technology that promise to mark the beginning of a new era in ocean sensing. Sensorbots are small, transparent spherical devices equipped with variety of surface mounted sensors for measuring various analytes such as pH, trace metals
