INCA-Macroplastics (Integrated Catchment model of MacroPlastics transport) is a mathematical model designed to assess macroplastics fate and transport in landscapes. The model calculates macroplastic concentrations and fluxes in and across land with different soil types, stream water and riverbanks and sediments at the scale of a river catchment.

INCA-Macroplastics was developed at the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) by Luca Nizzetto, Magnus Norling and François Clayer.  The interface presented here and the frame to estimate microplastic releases have been developed by François Clayer (NIVA).
