In order to analyze the pollution characteristics of small plastic debris(SPD) ashore on the shoreline of coastal flow, 12 times of survey were conducted on the Gwanganri beach of Busan for nearly 3 years. The sampled stations on the beach were divided into 11 squared survey sites from St. G1 to G11(see [Fig. 1]) and all of SPD was sorted into 11 items like P1 to P11 according to the kind of plastic materials and products(see ). 1. Total weights of them were widely ranged from 3.23g to 30.58g and also total amounts, from 39 ea to 398 ea on each site. 2. The ratio of items, P2 and P3, were accounted for 63% among all of them. 3. The seasonal variabilities of them were not founded with remarkable. 4. The correlation of total weights and amounts have reliable coefficients to some extent on the survey sites, but nearly didn't have reliances on items. 5. The average densities of total weights and amounts were computed with , , respectively.
