Aerosolized Coastal Water Pollution: Who is at Risk?

April 13, 2023 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm PDT

Aerosolized Coastal Water Pollution:Who is at Risk? with special guest Matthew Pendergraft, PhD

Special guest Matthew Pendergraft, PhD

About ½ of the world’s population lives near the coast, and coastal water pollution (CWP) is widespread. Although this study was conducted at Imperial Beach in Southern California, the findings have implications for other coastal areas worldwide that have been affected by human activity.

Swimming or playing in ocean water after it rains is not the only way to be exposed to sewage pollution, according to new research led by Scripps Oceanography. Please join us to hear from Scripps PhD graduate Matthew Pendergraft about the findings of a recent study led by him and Scripps atmospheric chemist Kim Prather. He will discuss whether sewage-polluted coastal waters transfer to the atmosphere in sea spray aerosol and if this can pose a potential threat to people far beyond just beachgoers, surfers, and swimmers.
