Three-dimensional model of microplastic pollution in Lake Erie (image) Rochester Institute of Technology Share Print E-Mail Caption RIT scientists developed the first three-dimensional model to show where microplastic pollution is collecting in Lake Erie. This figure is the result of a half-year model simulation of particle count distribution in the lake's open water.
