Marine Debris Virtual Community Center
To meet me

Welcome to the Mitigation and Prevention of Marine Debris VCC. The Marine Debris community aims to contribute to tackling the challenge that marine debris poses to the marine biosphere and, in many ways, to humans. To achieve this mission, the community assesses related societal knowledge needs, assesses existing technologies and identifies needs for new technologies, approaches and best practices, utilizes Earth observations and models to meet those knowledge needs, and assesses options that could mitigate existing marine debris or prevent future debris entering the ocean.
