Floating microplastics concentration collected from AKADEMIK TRYOSHNIKOV and S.A. AGULHAS II in the Southern Ocean from 2016-11-28 to 2017-07-27 (NCEI Accession 0253447)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

This study estimated the abundance of floating microplastics around the Southern Ocean during the Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition in 2016/17. This dataset contains all 40 net trawls performed during this survey in a spreadsheet format. Microplastics particles were collected using a 200 μm neuston net equipped with a 100 × 30 cm rectangular frame opening, towed for 15 min at a speed of 2–2.5 knots.
