Project Description
The Marine Pollution Monitoring Program (MARPOLMON) was implemented in
1980 after taking over the marine Pollution Monitoring Pilot
Program (MAPMOPP, 1975 to 1980) to monitor marine pollution
spreading in parts of oceans on a global scale and to evaluate
pollution problems in marine environment. Samples may have been
collected near marine discharge sites or during monitoring
surveys of large ocean areas.
