What's Happening with Contaminants of Emerging Concern in our Coastal Waters?

The Center for Coastal Studies, in collaboration with several other organizations, including Waquoit Bay Reserve, has documented the presence of contaminants of emerging concern (from sources including pharmaceuticals and personal care products) in our coastal waters. In 2014, the Center expanded this work to include research on accumulation of these contaminants in living organisms. What is their
impact on the environment and humans?

Dr. Amy Costa is a Research Scientist at the Center for Coastal Studies. Her work focuses on the quality and overall health of marine and coastal ecosystems through the integration of chemical, physical and biological studies.

There is no charge for the series, table seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
