Abstract
A first prerequisite to take effective plastic remediation measures is to know where and when action should be taken. A central objective in this project is to develop a two-dimensionsal-horizontal (2DH) plastic dispersal model. The model will be calibrated and validated with experiments and field sampling data.Plastics will be identified from remote sensing reflectance data through image recognition algorithms (‘Machine Learning’), hence resulting in an automated plastic detection method.
