    About This Project

    The deep sea is recognized as a hotspot for microplastic accumulation. While we are beginning to understand how microplastics accumulate in deep ocean sediments, few studies have investigated microplastic accumulation within organisms at vents and seeps. Access to a unique archive of biological samples provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to establish a baseline for microplastic accumulation in hydrothermal vent and methane seep species.
