Scientific Publications

Scientific articles about the litter problem, generated by researchers of our team.

The team of researchers of the "Científicos de la Basura" also aims to generate scientific knowledge to be published in important international science journals. In this section you will find all the scientific articles about the problem of litter in the environment generated within the framework of the projects carried out by the "Científicos de la Basura", based totally or partially on the information collected by the participating schoolchildren and teachers from all over Chile.
