Santa Cruz residents are currently helping scientists test water and sand samples to determine what, if any, types of radiation exist along California’s seashore.

Surfer Tyler Fox and several other volunteers collected ocean water samples at Pleasure Point on Sunday by paddling out on surfboards with water jugs. The samples will be sent to a lab at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, in Massachusetts, to be analyzed.
