Plastic pollution is a global problem since 2016 when its production reached 322 million tonnes, excluding fibers. Daily discharges of microplastics (MPs, defined as
Provides some details about the hydrologic cycle and then discusses the physical geology of groundwaters.

High amounts of macro and microplastic have been reported in rivers, lakes and seas. However, links between the observed pollution and their sources remain unclear.
Microplastics (MP) provide a unique and extensive surface for microbial colonization in aquatic ecosystems.

Plastics are a frequently observed component of marine debris and there is growing concern about microplastic (MP) ecotoxicity, and the impacts of additives, sorbed hazardous organic contaminants, hea
Characterising microplastics based on spectroscopic measurements is one key step of many studies that analyse the fate of microplastics in the environment.
The presence of plastic debris in the ocean is increasing and several effects in the marine environment have been reported.
Elsevier, TrAC - Trends in Analytical Chemistry, Volume 111, February 2019
Following a decade of research on the environmental impacts of microplastics, a knowledge gap remains on the processes by which micro and nanoplastics pass across biological barriers, enter cells and
