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 ...
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 ...
A Survey of Microplastics in Wastewater Treatment Plant Effluent in the Lake Champlain Basin
Microplastic pollution researchers are beginning to quantify, characterize, and collaborate on finding solutions to this emerging pollution problem. Recent studies have documented consumer care products and laundering of ...
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 ...
A Survey of Microplastic Pollution from Wastewater Treatment Plant Effluent Within the Lake Champlain Basin
Microplastics are an emerging and ubiquitous pollutant. Recent studies suggest that consumer care products and laundering of synthetic garments are major sources of microplastics. Most current wastewater treatment plant ...
