Plastic pollution of the oceans (Invisible and transmissible)

Plastic pollution of the oceans (Invisible and transmissible)

    Plastics in the oceans travel in the air!
     
    At sea, plastics do not degrade, but break up to the millionth of a millimeter scale.
    But what happens to these microparticles? Do they flow? Do they climb into the atmosphere via
    the evaporation of water?

    It's very nice to think that plastic waste, and macrodechets are grouped in areas called "trash Island" in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, so we can easily clean them,  But while waiting to approve an approved international ocean scavenger. But this is far from being the case, because the waste at sea follows the oceanic and terrestrial phenomenon, and becomes encrusted in the elements constituting the cycles of lives.




    After finding plastic debris, commonly called microplastic or nano plastic in the stomachs of marine species, scientists are trying to understand the dispersion of plastic in the universe via the oceans by following for example the phenomenon of evaporation.   Since 2013, these expeditions launched by Patrick Deixonne embarked scientists at sea for the ocean gyres [these gigantic swirls of water formed by a set of marine currents], where plastic waste accumulates. It is during one of them, in particular, that the chemist Alexandra Ter Halle, researcher at the laboratory IMRCP of Toulouse, had shown that the plastic debris at sea does not degrade (or very slowly), but fragment to reach the scale of one millionth of a millimeter.



    Also Scots researchers have discovered after analysis and research, that nano-plastics are present 
    on the mountains, from the rains loaded with plastics.
    Is it really possible?
    This is possible because we found nano plastic 150 meters deep by a recent expedition, but not that.
     
    However, the quantities of microplastics found in the rains and snows that fell in this isolated region 
    of the Pyrenees are not negligible. The researchers counted a deposit of more than 365 microplastic 
    particles per square meter per day over the five months of the study, during the winter of 2017-2018. 
    This is a concentration similar to those already measured in the air of major metropolises like Paris, 
    specify the researchers. Where do they come from? How did they get there? 
    We are still at the stage of hypotheses. 
    "What we can prove unequivocally is that they [these microparticles] are carried by the wind," 
    said Steve Allen, one of the co-authors of the Scottish study.
    The nanoparticles that fragment through the ocean follow and become 
    embedded in natural phenomena such as evaporation, winds, currents and so on. 
    and is found in our rains, in the earth, in the air ....
    The question of LYESOCEAN:
    When are we going to start the scientific and reasoned sensitization of the populations of the world? 
    and stop doing marketing and image science on the back of the planet.
