#OceanRunnerNH: The secret behind sea glass

Posted on August 23, 2016

Ocean Runner Nichole looks to Seacoast Science Center’s Heidi Duncanson to learn the secrets behind sea glass. As pieces of glass are “weathered” physically, by being tossed at sea, and chemically, by sea water, this marine debris is transformed into what some people consider treasures of the sea. It can take 20-50 years for a piece of glass to acquire the desirable, smooth, frosted characteristic.

Follow the Ocean Runner as she runs along the coast of New Hampshire and Southern Maine to raise awareness of our ocean environment and promote ocean health. Filled with questions about what she sees along the way, the Ocean Runner looks to her colleagues at the Center to answer her questions, and yours!
