Title:Modeling the Exposure of the Macaronesia Islands (NE Atlantic) to Marine Plastic Pollution
Responsible Partner: ARDITI
Date: April 2021
Download: Link
Description: In this study, the potential sources and pathways of marine plastic litter reaching the archipelagos of the Macaronesia region (Azores, Madeira, Canary Islands and Cabo Verde) were assessed by coupling a particle tracking model (OceanParcels) with datasets for ocean currents (GLORYS12V1 and GLORYS2V4), waves (WaveWatch III) and wind (ECMWF ERA-Interim).
