Mrs Roopa Chowta guided the students on the execution of the project. The project duration was from October 2022 to March 2023. Students received an in-depth training and monitoring to use the internationally accredited GLOBE and Marine Micro plastic Protocols.

Students conducted their onsite experiments at the different water sources in and around Mangalore. They visited Ullal beach, Netravathi and Shambavi Rivers to carry out their analysis like water temperature, salinity of the water and microplastic present in the outer surface of the water sample. They collected the sample, analysed and document the scientific data.
