We've received exciting news about friends of ALFA, Jim and Debby Carlton, who gave a talk and dock walk about this fascinating work at the Sitka Seafood Festival this year!
Jim and Debby Carlton have a major research paper published today at 2:00 PM in Science (with the *cover photo* as well!) on their past 5 years of research on Japanese tsunami marine debris! Jim is lead author, with additional co-authors John Chapman (who many spring W/M alums will remember as our spaghetti dinner chef in Newport, Oregon), Jon Geller, Jessica Miller, Greg Ruiz, Megan McCuller, Nancy Treneman, and Brian Steves. A Perspectives essay was also written about the paper. To see the paper go to http://www.sciencemag.org/ !
