  • This dataset includes data of plastic litter collected by citizens and students during 12 campaigns that were organised in Crete (Greece) during the period May 2022 – May 2023. The campaigns were organized within the framework of the NAUTILOS Horizon 2020 project. More specifically the number of plastic litter items per category (using the J code List of the EMODnet Chemistry Thematic Lot n°4) was recorded together with information about the location, date, surface area covered, data contributor and some environmental characteristics (sediment, weather, surroundings).

  • The dataset contains the results of the monitoring activity in distinct years in Slovenian coastal waters related to contaminants in Sea water, sediments and biota.

  • Data obtained on Saidia beach

  • Dataset gives a baseline for micro- and mesoplastic pollution distribution in 24 beaches along the Latvian coastline (Northern Europe, Baltic states), filling the existing knowledge gap and contributing to the global understanding of microplastic particles presence, transport, and the processes governing its dynamics. We also highlight citizen science as a fundamental tool to support data collection and raise awareness about microplastic pollution, as samples were collected by up to 250 volunteers during organized campaigns (Dimante-Deimantovica et al. 2023).

  • Beach litter monitoring data obtained at Bele Skale beach in Slovenia on 26/01/2024 in project REMEDIES

  • Beach litter monitoring data from the Swedish coastline of Kattegat, the Sound and the Baltic Sea

  • Coastal marine sediments receive intensive stress from urbanization and industrialization, which is manifested by increased contents of heavy metals and organic pollutants. Saronikos Gulf and the small embayment of Elefsis, stretch along the coast of the greater Athens and Pireaus port, the most urbanized and industrialized areas in Greece. Here we present the data of a 20-years geochemical record on grain-size, organic carbon, and major and trace elements contents of the Saronikos Gulf sediments. A total of 216 sediment samples were collected within the period of 1999 to 2018 from the four sub-sectors of the gulf, namely, the Elefsis Bay, the Inner, Outer, and Western (Megara and Epidavros basin) Saronikos Gulf. Additionally, at least one core was obtained from each sub-sector. Sediments deposited at pre-industrial periods were recognized by 14C and 210Pb datings, and served for establishing regionalized, background levels of metals. Factor analysis was conducted to reveal the inter-parametric relationships, thus their common sources, as well as transport and deposition pathways. Then, Enrichment Factors and the multi-elemental Modified Pollution Index (MPI) were calculated to assess the current environmental status of the sediments. Data of sampling sites with at least a five-year record, were assessed for temporal trends, to explore whether sustained, increasing or decreasing trends of the MPI are observed. The dataset and analyses presented here support the research article entitled Geochemistry of major and trace elements in surface sediments of the Saronikos Gulf (Greece): assessment of contamination between 1999 and 2018 by Karageorgis A.P., Botsou F., Kaberi H., and Iliakis S., https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2020.137046
