Floating microplastics concentration collected from SV Mir, ORV Alguita, SV Sea Dragon and RV Stad Amsterdam in the world oceans from 2007-09-16 to 2013-09-08 (NCEI Accession 0275968)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

This study was carried out to estimate the floating microplastics (i.e. plastics measuring less than 5mm, reported in unit of pieces/m^3) concentration in the world oceans. Microplastics data were collected with neuston nets during 24 expeditions that occurred between 2007 and 2013. This dataset contains the results from all 680 sampling stations, in a spreadsheet format.
