Scales of Spatial Heterogeneity of Plastic Marine Debris in the Northeast Pacific Ocean

Figure 7

Numerical abundance and percent cross-sectional area of plastic debris by size and water mass.

A) Numerical abundance of plastic debris by cross-sectional area; B) Percentage total debris area by cross-sectional area. Insets are an enlargement of the left side of the x-axis from 0 to 6 cm2. Includes both net-collected surface microplastic data and visually assessed macroplastic from Summer 2009, for a total of n = 34,233.
