We investigate the gravitational settling of a long, model elastic filament in homogeneous isotropic turbulence. We show that the flow produces a strongly fluctuating settling velocity, whose mean is moderately enhanced over the still-fluid terminal velocity, and whose variance has a power-law dependence on the filament’s weight but is surprisingly unaffected by its elasticity. In contrast, the tumbling of the filament is shown to be closely coupled to its stretching, and manifests as a Poisson…

Microplastics in the Marine Environment: Distribution, Interactions and Effects
TLDR
There is evidence to suggest that microplastic enter food chains and there is trophic transfer between predators and prey, and further research on a variety of marine organisms is required to understand the environmental implications of microplastics in more detail and to establish effects in natural populations.
