Publications WEATHER-MIC

New posters available

During the recent JPI-Oceans Conference in Lisbon (October 26, 2017), we presented a range of posters about our current activities. They can be accessed using the links to the right: "Related docs".

WEATHER-MIC publications

Rummel et al. have published a Brief Review paper in Environmental Science and Technology Letters (DOI: 10.1021/acs.estlett.7b00164) about the impacts of biofilm formation on the fate and potential effects of microplastic in the aquatic environment, see the open access paper.

Some of the WEATHER-MIC partners published a Commentary in Integrated Environmental Assessment and Monitoring (IEAM) recently: "From the sea to the laboratory: Characterization of microplastic as prerequisite for the assessment of ecotoxicological impact" (Potthoff et al.). The article is available as open access here.

The WEATHER-MIC consortium has published a Brief Review paper discussing microplastic being a possible planetary boundary threat in Environmental Science and Technology Letters (Jahnke et al., doi: 10.1021/acs.estlett.7b00008). It is available as open access here.

Poster WEATHER-MIC How microplastic weathering changes its transport, fate and toxicity in the marine environment.
