New CRC 1357 publication:
Microplastic particle characteristics and their distribution on the sea surface are critical for their transport across the water-air interface. By modelling bubble scavenging, rising bubbles were shown to generate a net flow of particles toward the surface. The transport was highly dependent on the particle's surface. Congratulations! ...more
Workshop "The patriarchy of things - and how it influences my research".
In this workshop Dr. Elena Köstner und Prof. Heike Feldhaar would like to discuss with young scientists (m,f,d) if and how the "patriarchy of things" influences the research environment and research questions in the CRC 1357 Microplastics. ...more
New CRC 1357 publication:
Have you ever wondered how microplastic particles behave in a lake ecosystem? Do they sink or float? What happens in a stratified lake in summer? Are they stopped by the thermocline? Congratulations on these new findings directly from Lake Brombach! ...more
