Water Data Acquisition

MicroPlasTox - Microplastics in the Marine Environment


This project aims to fulfill the identified knowledge gaps on the (1) existence of protocols and methodologies for microplastics sampling/quantification and (2) existence of ecotoxicological data using representative key species. The obtained data will be made available through an online repository and, based on the experimental results, the information will be used to develop a set of protocols for analytical and ecotoxicological assessments, which will include quality assurance and control recommendations and practices.

UNDERSEE is collecting several water samples in different geographical locations with a Plankton net coupled in the Remote Operating Vehicle (ROV).
