New year and great news! We finally published the results of our project “Sailing for the knowledge of the microplastics”.

After an incredible trip towards the Caribbean taking samples on meridional latitudes of the North Atlantic, all of us and our boat could take a break and rest. We enjoyed  during two months the Caribbean while we were waiting for a good forecast for our way back to the Azores Islands. Once in Faial, thanks to IMAR, we were able to analyse our 42 samples and start getting some results!

Here you can find the results of our one year work project!
