Abstract
Trajectories of floating microplastics released at 18 locations covering the whole coast of Jervis Bay for three scenarios: 2D approach, 3D approach with weak vertical turbulence, and 3D approach with strong vertical turbulence. For each scenario, twenty particles per hour were released at each seeding site in surface waters during 3 days from 26 June 1998. The dataset includes all of the trajectories used in the publication: Rojas et al. (2019).
