Microplastics Accumulate in Coastal Estuaries and Fjords

Shelf and deep sea environments have generally lower micropastic flux rates than coastal environments, but high rates may occur locally where bottom currents concentrate microplastic (e.g. on drift deposits, in submarine canyons and ocean trenches; Kane et al., 2020) or beneath locations of high particulate organic carbon flux driven by primary production (Tekman et al., 2020).
