What are microplastics and how do they interact with the marine environment and its inhabitants? An answer to these questions and many more can be found in a new publication highlighting the important role of four recent microplastics research projects funded under the framework of JPI Oceans.

How does plastic degrade in the ocean? What effects does it have on the organisms and ecosystems? Do particles carry other pollutants? And how to standardise the way we study microplastics? The four JPI Oceans funded projects present their results in their final reports.

The paper discusses that plastic in the global oceans fulfills two of the three conditions for pollution to pose a planetary boundary threat. The authors argue that the pollution is causing planetary-scale exposure that is not readily reversible.
