Visual Observation as a simple method to monitor fluxes of floating litter from rivers to the sea.
Quantification of floating macro litter loads through rivers to marine waters by visual observation: Setting up a Floating Litter Observation Monitoring Network across Europe and beyond.
Data will be used to:
Tablet computer Application for Visual Observation of Floating Macro Litter
Floating Litter Observation Monitoring Network
