Short summary
Simplified 2-D numerical models are typically used for simulating the transport of floating microplastics. This paper demonstrates the impact of vertical mixing on the horizontal transport and fate of microplastics in a bay and therefore the importance of a 3-D approach for accurate modelling of microplastics transport. These results have important implications for the assessment and prediction of pollution hot spots in coastal systems as well as for planning effective clean-up programmes.
