Surface microplastic concentrations in the Salento coastal seas (Southern Puglia, Italy) collected aboard R/V Pelagia from 2020-10-17 to 2021-06-28 (NCEI Accession 0277995)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

This study estimated the concentration of surface microplastics (i.e. plastics measuring less than 5mm, reported in unit of pieces/m3) in the Salento coastal seas (Southern Puglia, Italy) from 2020-10-17 to 2021-06-28. Microplastic data were collected aboard R/V Pelagia using a manta net. This dataset contains the results from all 18 surface water samples, in a spreadsheet format.
