Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Data is for three experiments. The first experiment examined calcification effects of ingested microbeads. The second experiment observed ingestion rates of four size classes of microbeads and how long they were retained. The third experiment observed and compared ingestion rates of one microbead size class and microfibers 3-5mm in length.
