BAMAR

about

BAMAR

BAMAR was born in the framework of ISMS 2020 as a response to current concerns about marine litter within both the scientific community and society at large. Marine litter is an urgent and highly complex subject that needs to be tackled from diverse and complementary points of view. In 2022, the workshop will have a special focus on marine microplastics (MPs). BAMAR-2022 will be an open forum for exchange of current knowledge about the abundance, fate and impacts of plastic litter and MPs in the marine ecosystems.  We aim to focus the directions of future research on MP pollution and to promote actions to reduce the effects of plastic pollution in marine ecosystems.

Effects of plastic litter and MPs on biota
MPs in the marine systems: from beaches to offshore
Initiatives to reduce marine litter pollution and citizen science
Plastic litter and microplastics: sources, transport and distribution
Plastic additives and leachates: The hidden threat of marine plastic pollution
Oceanic islands as hotspots of plastic pollution: the case of Canary Islands
Harmonization of procedures and characterization of MPs and plastic leachates
