How do marine litter and plastics travel long distances into and out of Arctic waters? A project by the Protection of the Arctic Marin Environment (PAME) Working Group of the Arctic Council aimed to find out with "Plastic in a Bottle". The custom-built capsule, containing a GPS transmitter and surrounded with bright protective yellow foam was tossed into the sea off Iceland in September 2019.
