About This Project

Our oceans are full of microplastics with potentially massive impacts on our marine environments. This research focuses on an unsuspected effect: do microplastics influence climate change? Our laboratory results suggest that microplastics may modify the microbial dynamics of carbon and oxygen. We want to further explore it in mesocosms, where large volumes of enclosed seawater can be examined under controlled and simulated conditions, like a “future” plastic ocean.
