About the IEEE OES Plastics in the Ocean Initiative

The "Plastics in the Ocean" Initiative of the Ocean Engineering Society (OES) of IEEE aims to develop a metrix for assessing the different approaches to the observation and detection of plastics required to for a set of indicators. To achieve this, a working group led by OES in collaboration with the UN Environment and the Group on Earth Observation (GEO) initiative “Blue Planet“ is organizing participatory workshops and utilizes a collaborative platform for thematic deliberations.

The OES Technology Committees “Ocean Observation Systems and Environmental Sustainability&rdqo; and “Ocean Remote Sensing” are supporting this initiative.
