Global Ocean Exposure-Risk Map for Microplastics Pollution Footprint

These research components aim to assess and project the impact of the microplastics footprint exposure and bioaccumulation potential on marine biodiversity in the global ocean at the geospatial level to understand the pollution footprint and hazard risk of plastics/microplastics exposure in the global ocean and for the most exposed coastal communities in tandem with food-web biomagnification modeling of microplastics in marine-coastal ecosystems.
