Plastic has now become essential in our daily lives because of its properties such as durability, impermeability, low density, low cost. But precisely because of its properties, plastic has also become the largest anthropogenic polluting debris in the environment. The activity addresses the topic of marine litter, and in particular the origin and characteristics of microplastics, increasingly present in the seas and beaches around the world.The activity will be carried out in the province of La Spezia under the coordination of INGV.
