TOMSK - Russian scientists say they have identified synthetic microfibres from garments as the primary source of microplastics found in rain and snow samples collected in Siberia.

Researchers at Tomsk State University (TSU), who were the first in Russia to study the atmospheric transport of microplastics, say it is because synthetic fibres are lighter and more easily carried in the air.

Scientists at TSU's Biological Institute analysed the speed and scale of atmospheric deposition of microplastic in different places of Siberia, including the city of Tomsk.
