Sample Analysis back at the Lab

Algalita Marine Research Foundation Biologist Gwen Lattin explains some of the equipment that will be used to analyze samples gathered by the research crew aboard ORV Alguita. This shows the equipment used in the lab to measure the ratio of plastic to zooplankton in a known volume of water and then sort the different types of plastic by size and color.

A message from Dr. Marcus Eriksen, Director of Research and Education at Algalita Marine Research Foundation.
