Exploring the Edge of the World's Largest Ocean
Oregon State University Press
There are days in late winter when the Pacific coast enjoys a brief spell of clear, warm weather. Most of the winter storms have passed and the summer fog has not yet settled in. This is when some coastal communities plan their annual beach clean-ups. Ellie and Ricky travel to the Oregon coast from their home in the Cascade Mountains to help with a one-day beach clean-up. Hoping to find a prized Japanese glass float, they instead find more important natural treasures, and evidence of an ocean that needs its own global-scale clean-up.
M.L. Herring is a science writer and illustrator who works with researchers around the world to describe discoveries within the natural world. She heads the communications department within Oregon State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences.
