What makes microplastics so dangerous? Their ability to spread so quickly can make them near impossible to prevent. Listen in to learn:
Moritz Lehmann, a Ph.D. candidate in physics at the University of Bayreuth, shares his work modeling the spread of microplastics throughout the environment.
Microplastics have presented themselves as one of the most significant dangers to the environment in recent history. However, much is still unknown surrounding their spread and long-term effects.
Using computer modeling, a better understanding of their origin and spread can be gained, and new solutions to stop it can be produced. Hopefully, if the spread can be controlled, an effort to curb their effects will soon follow.
