Protective Ship Coatings as an Underestimated Source of Microplastic Pollution.

Shipping traffic can be a major source of tiny plastic particles floating in the sea, especially out in the open ocean. In a paper published in the scientific journal Environmental Science & Technology, a team of German environmental geochemists based at the University of Oldenburg's Institute of Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment and led by Dr. Barbara Scholz-Boettcher for the first time provides an overview of microplastics mass distribution in the North Sea.
