The project of ESR4 will focus on 1) providing a detailed overview of the abundance and sources of MP in the greater Paris area, including polymer identification, 2) assessing the contribution of the Paris area to the MP contamination of the Seine river catchment, and 3) modelling the MP sources, fate, and sinks in the Seine catchment. For the monitoring, ESR4 will collaborate with the other involved ESRs to design a harmonised sampling strategy of sources and sinks at urban (Greater Paris) and Seine catchment scale. Annual MP loads will be modelled following a source fluxes analysis approach.
