Big Trash Data Sets and Applications

Presenter: Win Cowger - PhD student and NSF graduate research fellow at the University of California Riverside 

Abstract: Trash data is challenging to use because data standardization is in its nascency. Data science can help turn trash data (not trashy data) into knowledge and propose standards. The California Water Boards have hosted a series of trash “datathons” to advance fundamental applications and datasets for trash monitoring and management. This presentation will discuss some of the results of those datathons which leverage big data tools (open data, Trash Taxonomy, AI, machine learning, web applications …) to turn data into action. 

The California Trash Monitoring Methods Playbook

Presenter: Shelly Moore – Scientist at the San Francisco Estuary Institute and Executive Director at the Moore Institute for Plastic Pollution Research

Abstract: The Playbook is a reference for trash monitoring practitioners and agency staff interested in learning more about the considerations for selecting a suitable trash monitoring program. Management and scientific questions, accuracy, precision, and resources play an essential role in determining the method. The methods from the handbook will increase the comparability of the data collected so that spatial and temporal comparisons are possible.
