• First microplastic sampling in Sürreyyabey Dam Lake was completed. Unfortunately, we found lots of microplastics into the sieve. Results showed that many fibers are present in dam lake. 

 

  • A new project (TUBİTAK-119Y031) has started. The freshwater microplastic research team has start samplings in Lake Uluabat, Nilüfer Stream, and Kocaçay River. The results will be presented soon. If anyone interested in microplastics in freshwater, we would be happy to welcome them.
