The health and biodiversity of the oceans (Webinar)Sunday 7 June 2020
Within the context of the World Oceans Day, a series of webinars have been organized by the Catalan Water Partnership in collaboration with the Barcelona Cicle de l'Aigua (Barcelona City Council) to present current problems such as mercury or plastic contamination in the ocean, as well as to present innovative projects to improve the water quality of our seas and oceans. This Monday (8th June), the program involves the participation of two young researchers from the Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM-CSIC), members of SIBECOL, who will talk about the problem of plastics in the sea (Cristina Romera-Castillo) and mercury contamination (Andrea G.
