River plastic emissions to the world’s oceans

Jun 09, 2017 - 8:26 PM - by renjithvishnu
A recent article in Nature Communications provides a global estimate of river plastic inputs into the world’s oceans, considering both the seasonality and spatial variability of local sources.

Here is the abstract of the study:

Plastics in the marine environment have become a major concern because of their persistence at sea, and adverse consequences to marine life and potentially human health. Implementing mitigation strategies requires an understanding and quantification of marine plastic sources, taking spatial and temporal variability into account. Here we present a global model of plastic inputs from rivers into oceans based on waste management, population density and hydrological information. Our model is calibrated against measurements available in the... [Read More]
