This project investigates the occurrence and effects of microplastic pollution in the Arctic marine environment focusing on marine sediments and benthic food chains in coastal habitats. Investigations will be carried out in polluted and pristine areas in the Norwegian Arctic to determine the relative importance of different sources.
