      • Discover the content of the session: "Marine Litter: Solutions for Monitoring, Mitigation and Prevention"

      • While quantitative information on production and use of plastics is to some extent available, the amount and fate of plastics discarded or leaked into the environment is highly uncertain. In particular, knowledge of how much plastics, at different scales down to micro and nano levels, reaches the ocean and the pathways and fate of such plastic in the ocean remain poorly known.

        A focus is needed on how science and technology could quantify the pervasiveness of marine pollution and facilitate an understanding of the mitigating impact of reducing the stock of plastics in the ocean. The goals for meeting such a challenge go through the determination of a strategy for monitoring marine litter in the ocean and develop solutions for addressing the problem.

      • The session will be divided in four parts. The oral presentations are set for 15’, and the posters’ ones (magenta highlighted) for 10 minutes, in order to let rooms for discussions. The posters presentation will be interspersed with the oral ones for giving more visibility, and allowing more interactions.


        Session organised by:

        IEEE-OES and Laboratory for Ocean Physics and Satellite remote sensing (LOPS) (France)

        The session on Marine litter and Marine Debris is focused on solutions. Indeed, while quantitative information on production and use of plastics is to some extent available, the amount and fate of plastics discarded or leaked into the environment is highly uncertain.
