Project: Research

Project Details


Research in partnership with MQ researchers Scott Wilson and Vladimir Strezov and Tomsk State University (RF) Professor Danil Vorobiev and Dr Andrey Trifonov into the source and load of microplastics in Russian Arctic rivers and the depositional rate of microplastics in the Russian Arctic. Accrual of science in order to 1) inform the development of the law related to the regulation and clean-up of microplastics in major continental water bodies and fishing grounds; and 2) the development of new technologies for the assessment and cleaning of microplastics in continental water bodies (lakes and rivers).
