NOAA Live! Alaska
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
January 12, 2021 - Talking Trash: Marine Debris Research in Alaska
Peter Murphy, NOAA's Marine Debris Program
With Alaska's extensive, rugged and remote coastline, longer than the rest of the United States coastline combined, innovative and creative approaches are required to address marine debris. Join us to learn about marine debris of all shapes and sizes, as well as projects that NOAA and community partners are doing in Alaska to conduct marine debris research, removal and prevention.

NOAA Live! Alaska is a weekly series of interactive webinars, aimed at Alaska students in grades 2-8 (but of interest to all ages!). We will feature NOAA scientists, educators and partners to explore NOAA’s work in Alaska. Learn about current research. Connect to what’s going on in your communities. Join us to ask questions to our presenters and learn more about weather, oceanography, marine life, fisheries and more in Alaska!
NOAA Live! Alaska is coordinated by NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center, NOAA's Alaska Regional Collaboration Network, and the National Weather Service. The series is modeled on the NOAA Live! webinars coordinated by Woods Hole Sea Grant and the NOAA Regional Collaboration Network. Contact Lisa.Hiruki-Raring@noaa.gov with any questions.
