Project name Microplastics monitoring protocol
Project Description This project aims at Beta-testing the "Microplastics monitoring protocol in surface waters" developed by Deakin University in collaboration with Labter-Crea MN and Globe Italia.

As part of the project, students and teachers will be trained on a newly-established image dataset that allows recognition of common items expected to be present in surface waters.

This dataset includes a selection of naturally occurring particles. These could be of biological or mineral origin.

Summary Examples of the natural objects include:
 • Dark grey shell of a biological nature next to a colourless transparent object
 • Filaments of biological origin (cellular structure visible) surrounded by grains of sand
 • Filaments of biological origin (cellular structure visible) next to a pediastrum (green algae) colony (necklace type green object with triangles arranged in a circle).
 • Examples of phytoplancton (tri-needle shape on the right, three-filament shape on the left) and a potential grain of sand (grey)
 • Colony of diatomes, rectangular shape, most likely Fragilaria
