My research aims to include a microbial loop and microplastics dynamics into the SalishSeaCast, a high-resolution ocean model of the Salish Sea. The first piece of my research focuses on describing microplastics distribution, dynamics and fate within the Salish Sea. To do so, I am using SalishSeaCast output to run Ocean Parcels, a customizable Lagrangian model that allows the implementation of particle properties.
