USGS scientists test new method for microplastics analysis

Detailed Description

USGS hydrologists and hydrologic technicians test a new method for collecting water from the Millstone River in Blackwells Mills, New Jersey. The new method helps measure microplastics concentrations using representative cross-section sampling. In the background, USGS staff maneuver a stainless-steel pump and tubing at pre-determined points along the river.
