Micro Plastic Diffusion and the Evaluation of Near-surface Current Strain Utilizing a Dynamic Platform


Emin Garrick*

The proliferation of plastic pollution has emerged as a global environmental concern, with micro plastics becoming a significant component of this crisis. Micro plastics defined as plastic particles less than 5mm in size are pervasive in aquatic environments posing risks to marine life, ecosystems and potentially human health. One critical aspect of addressing micro plastic pollution understands their dispersion and transport patterns which are influenced by near-surface currents. This article delves into the phenomenon of micro plastic diffusion focusing on the evaluation of nearsurface current strain using dynamic platforms and highlights the importance of advanced technological solutions in comprehending and mitigating micro plastic pollution.
