CYGNSS Ocean Microplastic Concentration (Version 1.0) Release

The PO.DAAC is pleased to announce the public release of the (Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System) CYGNSS Version 1.0 (V1.0) ocean microplastic concentration dataset. The CYGNSS V1.0 ocean microplastic concentration data are intended for users with interest in microplastic collection or monitoring. Detection of plastics from remote sensing is an active area of research. This product demonstrates the potential use of bistatic radars via indirect methods. Specifically, microplastic concentration number density (#/km2) is estimated by an empirical relationship between ocean surface roughness and....
