Microplastics in marine sediments
Definition: Microplastics are fragments of any type of plastic less than 5 mm in length. The data set consists of results of analyzes of the top layer (0-2 cm) bottom sediments in Norwegian sea and coastal areas, which show the amount of microplastic particles in surface sediments. Microplastics are measured in number of particles in 1kg sediment dry weight.
