Marine Litter

The pollution of our oceans with plastic waste is now at the worst point it’s ever been. Plastic has reached every corner of the globe, from the frozen sea ice of the North Pole to the bottom of the deepest trenches in the Atlantic, and steps need to be taken to prevent the spread of its impact on both marine life and the environment. ARGANS has undertaken several projects with the aim of detecting and tracking marine litter events via remote sensing, from their source to resting place. Working in partnership with other organisations dedicated to cleaning up our oceans, we aim to use our skills and knowledge of remote sensing to leave the world a cleaner place than we found it.
