• First microplastic sampling in Sürreyyabey Dam Lake was completed. Unfortunately, we found lots of microplastics into the sieve. Microscopic studies have not finished yet but preliminary results showed that many fibers are present in dam lake. 


  • New project (TUBİTAK-119Y031) has started. The freshwater microplastic research team will start samplings in Lake Uluabat, Nilüfer Stream and Kocaçay River near future.
