Atmospheric transport of microplastics (B05-SFB1357) While microplastic particles typically remain airborne only for days up to weeks, they can be transported over large distances up to thousands of kilometers, undergo mechanical and chemical weathering and aging, and can be deposited on to terrestrial and aquatic surfaces. Atmospheric microplastics can be found even in the most remote ecosystems of the world such as the polar regions. The objective of the micrometeorology group is to ...
