New high quality integrated marine litter dataset and data products for Europe

Following endorsement by the EU Joint Research Centre (JRC), EMODnet partners have produced a new data collection for beach litter and related data products, covering all EU sea-basins for the period 2010-2020. Over 40 European countries contributed to the integrated dataset, data formatting and validation of data gathered from more than 10,300 surveys from national monitoring for legislative purposes and other sources such as research and citizen science initiatives. The marine litter workflow explains the process including all fit-for-purpose guidelines, tools and software. The new data and data products have high relevance and potential for use in national assessments of Good Environmental Status for the European the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, in particular for Descriptor 10: Marine Litter.
