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 plastic fragments include:
 • Fragment of plastic coating
 • Dark brown polygonal plastic fragment
 • Red (top surface) and white polygonal plastic fragment, most likely from a coating
 • Blue fragment of plastic, showing soft curves. Most likely from a coating
 • Red polygonal plastic fragment, showing smooth but somewhat pitted surface
 • White polygonal piece of plastic showing scratch marks
 • Two pieces of plastic, polygonal, one blue, one white-ish
