Microplastic Bioaccumulation in invertebrates, fish, and cormorants in Lake Champlain
It is estimated in the United States that 8 trillion microbeads enter our waterways daily. Microplastics are typically discharged into local watersheds through wastewater treatment plant effluent and marine debris, with ...
Spatial and Temporal Distribution and Abundance Microplastics in Lake Champlain Long-Term Monitoring Samples
Microplastics are particles less than 5mm in size, characterized as fibers, fragments, beads, foams, and pellets. Microplastics (MP) arise from four main processes: environmental degradation (UV exposure, mechanical and/or ...
Survey of the Abundance and Distribution of Nurdles and Microplastics in Long-term Monitoring Zooplankton Samples from Lake Champlain
Microplastics are particles less than 5mm in size, characterized as fibers, fragments, beads,foams, and pellets. Microplastics arise from four main processes: environmental degradation(UV exposure, mechanical and/or ...
Microplastic Biomagnification in Invertebrates, Fish, and Cormorants in Lake Champlain
The goal of this research was to determine whether microplastics (MP) are uptaken by invertebrates, fish, and Phalacrocorax auritus (double-crested cormorants) resident to Lake Champlain. We did so by quantifying and ...
Microplastic Pollution: A Survey of Wastewater Effluent in the Lake Champlain Basin
Microplastic is defined as particulatefragments, fibers, films, foams, pellets, and beads. Microplastic pollution was first documented in the 1970s and interest has grown from initial characterization, to effects within ...
Micro-plastic Bioaccumulation in Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens) of Lake Champlain
Micro-plastics are discharged into watersheds through wastewater treatment plant effluent and onward into waterbodies. Studies have shown that micro-plastics are bioaccumulating within aquatic organisms found in both fresh ...
