Idyllic Portuguese Island Site Of Strange 'Plasticrust' Pollution

Scientists have discovered a new type of plastic pollution.

According to CNN, "plasticrusts" are layers of plastic encrusted onto ocean rocks.

Researchers from the Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre first observed the plastic patches on the Portuguese island of Madeira in 2016.

The researchers noticed that the plasticrusts were more abundant and have therefore initiated a more rigorous monitoring of the phenomenon.
