AUTHOR: Beck LaBash, Cohasset Center for Student Coastal Research

ABSTRACT: Citizen-science plays a key role in understanding the plastic pollution problem that plagues our oceans. Students from the Cohasset Center for Student Coastal Research have been engaged in this global effort since 2015 and have been using ArcGIS tools over the years to document Marine Debris. Many GIS iterations have taken place over the years as students have struggled with methodologies (snorkeling v using GoPros), GPS considerations (above water, below water), and ArcGIS Online analysis tools (interpolation, density). Students will display latest findings and analyses conducted using ArcGIS Online.
