Abundances of microplastics concentrations collected from R/V Mediterranean Explorer in the oligotrophic Israeli Mediterranean coastal waters from 2013-07-25 to 2015-05-18 (NCEI Accession 0260245)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

This study estimated the seasonal abundances of sea surface microplastics (i.e. plastics measuring 0.3mm- 5mm, reported in unit of pieces/m^3) at 17 sites along the Israeli Mediterranean coastal waters from 2013-07-25 to 2015-05-18. Data was collected using a manta net. This dataset contains the results from all 108 net tows, in a spreadsheet format. Tows were conducted for 15 minutes along shore at an average cruising speed of 2 knots.
