About the Event

Microplastics are a significant concern regarding pollution and their impact on  flora and fauna. As a new form of sediment, their existence in the natural world is governed by the same physical processes that influence the dispersal and deposition of contemporary sediments.

During this workshop we aim for participants  to gain an appreciation of microplastics, what they are, how they occur and how they are influenced by sedimentary processes. Our speakers will address the role of microplastics with respect to biology, psychology and sedimentology.
