“Current understanding of subsurface transport of micro- and nanoplastics in soil” with Yingxue Yu.
Microplastics can come from all kinds of sources, including broken down bottles, face and body scrubs, plastic bags, tire tracks, agricultural mulch films, sewage waste, and more. However, for as ubiquitous as these plastics can be, there’s still much to be learned about how they move through our soils; how they’re affected by their surrounding soils, weather, and animals; and their ultimate environmental impacts. This episode, Yingxue shares research from her recent review paper about what microplastic knowledge we already have and where we have yet to go.
