Pacific Nearshore Project: Catching Sea Otters in the Wild

How do you catch a sea otter? Very carefully. Researchers must use high-tech equipment and teamwork in order to safely capture these marine mammals and collect blood samples and conduct health exams as part of the Pacific Nearshore Project. The Pacific Nearshore Project is a multinational, multiagency project investigating sea otters as health indicators of coastal waters

Sealed parking lot with wear marks from snowplow

Once applied, sealcoat can be abraded by snowplows, as evidence here, or the abrasive action of car tires. Runoff carrying high-PAH sealcoat particles flows into storm drains, where it can be transported to streams and lakes. Runoff from coal-tar-sealcoated pavement contains extremely high concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and is toxic to aquatic
