NEW PAPER: micro- and nanoplastics sampling and reporting guide

Over the past year, the Adrift Lab team (Lavers and Hollis) have been working with a team of researchers to develop an up-to-date and comprehensive guide for microplastic and nanoplastic sample collection and processing. The aim of these "field manuals" is to provide a concise summary of the state-of-the-science on how to undertake plastics sampling in a robust and repeatable way that ensures data quality and longevity.

The manual has been published by the National Environmental Science Program (NESP) and is free to access here:, with the full manual and checklist downloadable as a PDF from this site.
