TrackMPD is a three-dimensional particle-tracking model for the transport of marine plastic debris in oceans and coastal systems. The power of TrackMPD lies in: its compatibility with diverse formats of current-velocity inputs; its ability to extend the Lagrangian modelling of advection-diffusion by adding more-complex and realistic particle behaviours and physical processes. its user-friendly code (developed […]
