San Diego pink waves get dyed as scientists study water pollution

There’s something different about the waves at Torrey Pines State Beach in California: they’re pink, temporarily, of course.

The coloring comes from a pink dye that’s part of an experiment to research how small freshwater outflows interact with the surf zone where waves are breaking, said postdoctoral scholar Alex Simpson.

Simpson is part of a team made up of researchers from the University of California San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the University of Washington.

The team’s project is called Plumes in Nearshore Conditions or PiNC. It focuses on the estuary and coastline at Los Peñasquitos Lagoon, a small intermittently closed estuary located between San Diego and Del Mar.
