Abstract: This data set contains information related to the collection of waste at the
coast of Cape Shirreff, Livingston Island. The material collected corresponds
only to the wastes generated off-shore as a result of fishing, tourist,
logistical activities, etc. The beached material has been categorized
according to the activities that generated the wastes, country of origin,
concentration and geographical distribution. .
