Data underlying the publication: Exploring plastic transport dynamics in the Odaw river, Ghana



This database is the suplementary material for the scientific paper in preparation: Exploring plastic transport dynamics in the Odaw river, Ghana. The data contains the field data of floating macroplastics within the study area over the sampling period. Since the paper looks at exploring the dynamics of plastics to rainfall, tide and discharges data, the file also contains:
1. the daily raingauge rainfall data accessed online through the TAHMO website
2. Tide data from online
3. simulated discharges over the sampling period.
This file also has the coordinates of the sampling locations for the study as well as the coordinates of the rain gauges within the study area.
