Alvise Vianello, an associate chemistry professor at Aalborg University, and researcher Laura Simon are studying the impact of microplastics in the ocean. "We are exploring the unexplored. It's like, you know, finding the needle in the haystack," Vianello states. The team is trying to understand what happens to microplastics when they enter the ocean and how they move from the surface to the seafloor. The data collected could help understand how microplastics are affecting the ocean's ability to cool the earth and human health.
