Macroplastics North Sea (finished)
Macroplastics in the Southern North Sea Sources, Sinks and Avoidance Strategies
MWK Call for Proposals "Coastal and Marine Research in Lower Saxony
|Prof. Dr. J.-O. Wolff (ICBM)
|Florian Hahner, Dr. K. Lettmann
"The steadily increasing pollution of the oceans with long-lived plastic waste is a global problem with profound impacts on marine ecosystems, especially also on Lower Saxony's coasts and island beaches. This project will investigate dispersal pathways and pollution areas of drifting macroplastics ("visible plastic parts") with computer simulations and determine the main regional sources of pollution. Monitoring, analysis and coastal observing systems, with the active involvement of citizens, will identify possible ways to plan abatement strategies."
