The UWT fall environmental science seminar series is winding up this coming Monday with a presentation by UW Lecturer, Julie Masura. Julie’s topic, centering on the role of citizen science, is part of the continuing theme of the series, “Managing the Puget Sound.”
As a lecturer of Geoscience in Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences at UWT, Julie teaches in the freshman core and several environmental science and studies courses for the Division of Science and Math. Her graduate work as a sedimentologist has led her to studying harmful algal blooms in Puget Sound and estuarine processes on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Some of her recent field work has focused on determining the concentrations of microplastics in the waters of the Pacific Northwest and partnering with a variety of environmental education groups throughout the region.
The presentation is scheduled for Monday, December 7, 12:25 to 1:25 in SCI 309, on the campus of UW Tacoma. This event is free and open to the public.
