Title: Floating plastic target off Tsamakia Beach, Greece

Description: Top: A drone image of one of the floating plastic targets deployed just off the coast of Tsamakia Beach, Greece (39.1°N, -26.6°W), by a team at the University of Aegean. The target measures 5x20 m, and is formed by blue plastic bags and clear plastic bottles.

Bottom: An output image from the processor side-by-side with a true colour RGB composite from Copernicus Sentinel-2 of the plastic target. The Copernicus Sentinel-2 pixel, mostly covered by the target, is flagged by the processor in yellow, as likely containing plastic.
