People throw away plastic every day. Lots of it ends up in the ocean. It can harm marine wildlife there. Scientists are developing technology that helps collect plastic from the ocean. Cleaning Up Plastic with Artificial Coastlines looks at the science behind the technology, its risks, and how it could help improve life on Earth. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Core Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
