Marine debris pose a mounting threat to life in the oceans and on land, including human life, and technologies to observe, measure and monitor the flow of debris into, and within, the oceans are urgently needed in support of mitigating the threat.

Session Description

Session 3: Monitoring: From Sensors to Indicators and Policy

In this session, invited papers will give an overview of key aspects of marine debris, including its origin and quantities, scenarios of future developments, and potential impacts. Emerging approaches to the linking of observation and knowledge to policy making will be introduced. The challenge of connecting data to actions will be addressed and recently proposed concepts, such as the “global digital ecosystem for the environment” and “Data as Active Subjects” will be considered.
