Peter Kohler – The Plastic Tide

The Plastic Tide expedition harnesses cutting edge drone and algorithm technology to create an open source map of the plastic pollution problem in the UK and beyond.

On Saturday 1 April 2017, Peter Kohler and his Expedition Team scientifically detected, measured and monitored litter over 5,000km of the UK's coastline using drones. Findings are FREE and have been available to the public and also to help educate and assist local communities in beach cleans.
