Proliferation of microplastics in rivers, lakes, estuaries, coastal waters and oceans is a major global challenge and threat to the environment, livelihoods and human health. Reliable predictive tools can play an essential role in developing an improved understanding of microplastics behaviour, exposure and risk in water bodies, and facilitate identification of sources and accumulation hot spots, thereby enabling informed decision-making for targeted prevention and clean-up activities. This study presents a new numerical framework (CaMPSim-3D) for predicting microplastics fate and transport in different aquatic settings, which consists of a Lagrangian, three dimensional (3D) particle-tracking model (PTM) coupled with an Eulerian-based hydrodynamic modeling system (TELEMAC). The 3D PTM has several innovative features that enable accurate simulation and efficient coupling with TELEMAC, which utilizes an unstructured computational mesh. The PTM is capable of considering spatio-te.....
