July 30, 2018 - Dispatch From Nanuq: arctic pollution

Nanuq has arrived at Svalbard ahead of schedule

Research projects continue onboard

Another dispatch from Safiria Buono! Safiria is working on the microplastics project on board Nanuq and describes how pervasive the material is in the Arctic environment:

“Unfortunately, plastic is all too common out here. We have seen, during our shifts, a bit less than 10 big pieces of floating plastic in 7 days. The probability of encountering plastic so frequently out in the open Arctic sea, so far from sources of pollution, should be really thin.”
