Kane et al. Microplastics Paper

It’s always nice to be name checked in papers where we’ve been involved in lab or field work, and it’s even better when it’s a great paper in a top journal! For this work we assisted in the methodological development of the microplastic extraction procedure. Microplastic extraction is a complex and time-consuming process involving density separation of the material in a sample, and the nature of the sediment and depositional context and process needs careful consideration.
