David Hastings, a former college professor and marine science expert is now retired. His research concentrates on the effects of climate change on the ocean. He is also a paleoclimatologist. He recently traveled to Hong Kong and Xiamen, China, to present his findings as co-PI of the C-IMAGE project.
The threat of environmental pollution to the oceans and marine animal populations is growing. This compels scientists to take a position on the issue. Hastings observed billions of microplastic particles floating in the water during a routine plankton collection. He and his team decided to conduct a study to determine the problem’s prevalence.
