After reading the article “Caffeinated Seas found off Pacific Northwest” by Brian Handwerk try to answer the following questions using the knowledge acquired in the first seven lectures of the course.


1) Why do you think that concentrations of caffeine were comparatively higher (45 nanograms per litter) in wilder costliness than in areas of relatively calm waters?




2) Do you think is easier to detect caffeine in the shore than in the Pelagic Zone? Explain why.






3) Do you think marine currents are connected in anyway with the detection of caffeine levels in the coastline?






4) So far, the article indicates that high caffeine levels have been detected in the epipelagic zone of the continental shelf. Do you think that there is a possibility that this caffeine, will find its way to the abyssal plains? Please surprise me with a “caffeinated” hypothesis.
