Work Package: Physical Oceanography (CTD)

Work Package: Heavy Metals Monitoring

Microplastics in the world’s oceans pose a potential threat to organisms that depend on the marine environment. In order to effectively assess this threat, information regarding the presence of these particles in the marine environment is particularly important. To date, there is a particular paucity of information regarding microplastics in Polar
