On some physical and dynamical properties of microplastic particles in marine environment


•Foamed microplastics are able to roll over water surface faster than currents.
•Time of fouling depends linearly on the characteristic length scale of a particle.
•Films and fibres begin sinking due to bio-fouling times sooner than spheres.
