Science / project plan

The objectives of the proposed project are to determine i) the effects of different microplastics on the growth and melting rates of sea ice, ii) the partitioning of microplastics between seawater and sea ice as sea ice grows and iii) the impact of the microplastics on the sea ice albedo and visible light transmission within the ice cover.
