Plastic pollution seems to have found a new way to take in the natural scenery.

Scientists have discovered a strange, never-before-seen form of pollution, which they called the “plasticrust,” which seems to have originated in the ocean, and follows up on the rocks along the coast of the Portuguese island of Madeira.

“[The scabs] are probably caused by the crash of large pieces of plastic up against the rocky shore, which results in the plastic crust of the rock, in a similar manner, algae, and lichen to do that,” Ignacio Gestoso, a marine ecologist who led the study, told the Earther.

Gestoso is reportedly observed for the first time, with the odd he is on the island’s coastline in 2016, and in the following year, as the plastic and he was still there. At the beginning of this year, they started to do their own research, and to collect samples to be analyzed.

Plastic waste is one of the most extensive of which is the pollution of our planet as it is today, and with a particular focus on the marine environment, and conservation,” the researchers in their study’s abstract. “The dimension of the problem is such that it is possible that our current era will be the generation of an anthropogenic marker horizon of the sun in the earth’s sedimentary record.”

Although it is unclear what the impact of the plasticrust for the marine life in the vicinity of the shoreline, which, she, it, certainly, it is possible that it may cause problems with the digestive system, or the introduction of other polluting substances, according to the Earther.

Gestoso said future research should look at how much plastic is on the coast of arequipa and snails to take them.

“As a marine ecologist, researcher, I would prefer to be in the reporting of other types of research, and it is not a paper that describes this sad new, the way of plastic pollution,” Gestoso, told the science news website. “Unfortunately, the scale of the problem is so big that some of the sites will be free of plastic pollution.”
