Standardised protocol for monitoring microplastics in sediments. Deliverable 4.2.
(JPI-Oceans BASEMAN Project., 2018)
Marine anthropogenic litter has long been recognised as an emerging pollutant of global concern. Its ubiquitous distribution and its direct and indirect impacts on aquatic ecosystems, marine fauna and local economies ...
Marine Debris Monitoring and Assessment: Recommendations for Monitoring Debris Trends in the Marine Environment.
(NOAA Marine Debris Division, Silver Spring, MD, 2013)
Marine debris is defined by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the United States Coast Guard (USCG) as any persistent solid material that is manufactured or processed and directly or indirectly, ...
A rapid method for assessing the accumulation of microplastics in the sea surface microlayer (SML) of estuarine systems.
Microplastics are an increasingly important contaminant in the marine environment. Depending on their composition and degree of biofouling, many common microplastics are less dense than seawater and so tend to float at ...
Guidance on Monitoring of Marine Litter in European Seas: a guidance document within the Common Implementation Strategy for the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
(Publications Office of the European Union, Luxembourg, 2013)
The MSFD Technical Subgroup on Marine Litter was tasked to deliver guidance so that European Member States could initiate programmes for monitoring of Descriptor 10 of the MSFD. The present document provides the ...
Monitoring the abundance of plastic debris in the marine environment.
Plastic debris has significant environmental and economic impacts in marine systems. Monitoring is crucial to assess the efficacy of measures implemented to reduce the abundance of plastic debris, but it is complicated ...
Monitoring and assessment guidelines for marine litter in Mediterranean MPAs. Technical report of the Interreg/ MED/AMARE project.
(Ifremer/AMARE, Bastia, France, 2015)
As part of the AMARE project, the main purpose of this report is to provide advice and practical guidance, for establishing programmes to monitor and assess the distribution and abundance of marine litter in MPAs. The ...
Microplastics in a Marine Environment: Review of Methods for Sampling, Processing, and Analyzing Microplastics in Water, Bottom Sediments, and Coastal Deposits.
The basic approaches, methods, and procedures for collecting and analyzing samples of microplastics in a marine environment are briefly described.
Measuring Marine Plastic Debris from Space: Initial Assessment of Observation Requirements.
Sustained observations are required to determine the marine plastic debris mass balance and to support effective policy for planning remedial action. However, observations currently remain scarce at the global scale. A ...
Summary of current methods of monitoring and assessment for marine litter.. Deliverable D1.2 report. MARLISCO project.
(MARine Litter in Europe Seas: Social AwarenesS and CO Responsibility, 2013)
This report summarises the marine litter issue in relation to monitoring and assessment. It includes a brief summary of current assessment and monitoring techniques within European Seas ...
A General Methodology for Beached Oil Spill Hazard Mapping.
The current lack of a standardized approach to compute the coastal oil spill hazard due to maritime traffic accidental releases has hindered an accurate estimate of its global impact, which is paramount to manage and ...
