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 synthetic fibres include:
 • Dark, shiny, fibre, flattened at one end (cut)
 • Dark, shiny, fibre, square section, flattened at one end (cut) and frayed
 • Light blue fibre, polygonal cross-section, in and amongst sand debris
 • Agglomerate of fibres, showing one blue synthetic fibre
 • Blue fibre with a channel-section
 • Black fibre with multi-channel section
