Plastic Litter Project 2021 (PLP2021)
The Plastic Litter Project 2021 is an in situ validated data acquisition campaign of artificial floating marine litter (white HDPE mesh) and natural debris (wooden planks) targets. Each target has an approximate surface area of 600 m2, and is deployed in the Gulf of Gera, in the Island of Lesvos, in Greece (plp.aegean.gr). The targets were deployed for a 4-month period, spanning from 2021-06-16 to 2021-10-04.
