To assess the accuracy and precision of microscopy, we conducted a metho...
Anthropogenic debris including microparticles (MP; <5mm) are ubiquitous in marine environments. The Salish Sea experiences seasonal fluctuations in precipitation, river discharge, sewage overflow events, and tourism– all variables previously thought to have an impact on MP transport and concentrations. Our goals are two‐fold: 1) Describe long‐term...
