First output for the MIDYNET project

The MIDYNET project (CNRS) aims to analyse the dynamics of microplastics in a tidal estuary in order to better understand the exchanges between river and ocean waters. This project is based on a collaboration between the MIO, IPREM and SIAME. The workshop site is the Adour estuary, in the Atlantic Pyrenees. The first release was carried out on June 6, 2019, with the dual objective of testing the experimental protocols and providing a first database during periods of high throughput.
