Litter pr Mareano station
Definition: Number of litter objects observed on the seabed per 100 meters on video stations from the Mareano cruises. The data set shows the number of observed objects (larger than 5 cm) on the seabed that are categorized as litter. Litter includes all elements that are man-made. The data set is based on video observations and covers areas where the MAREANO mapping project has collected video material. The data set is based on the interpretation of video material of the surface of the seabed, collected using video rigs. Recording of the seabed surface was done along 200 m and 700 m long transects. All objects identified as litter are recorded along each transect. The variable 'litter' is numeric.
