During a two day intensive microplastic field course (University of Bergen, Department of Biological Sciences), NIVA trained students MSc students on field sampling techniques for microplastics. This included the use of the NIR scanner (Task 8.4) in order to evaluate the distribution and potential sources of litter and plastic fragments found on the shorelines around Bergen. Students were introduced to sampling tools and techniques through presentations and practical work, they designed an approach to look at different beaches (enclosed and exposed), collected samples and identified the polymers using the NIR scanner.
