Microplastics: Humankind’s Lasting Environmental Footprint?
Friday, January 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Dr. Patricia Corcoran is currently Associate Professor and Department Chair of the Department of Earth Sciences at Western University where she has been since January 2003. Dr. Corcoran will be speaking about her research on the distribution and deposition of microplastics in the lowest sediment level of Lake Huron. One significant element of her research concerns the distribution, accumulation and degradation of plastic debris in shoreline and near-shore benthic sediments of lakes, rivers and oceans. Dr. Corcoran and her research group are investigating the potential for this plastic debris to become part of the future rock record, thereby representing a symbol of humankind’s global effect on Earth’s environment.
