Abstract
The expanded polystyrene (EPS) is one of common plastic debris items in both freshwater and marine environments worldwide. In addition, its gas-blown foamed structure can be susceptible to physical and chemical weathering. However, fragmentation process of EPS, making a micro- and nanoplastics, by sunlight exposure remains largely unknown. We aimed to quantitatively determine micro- (0.8-500
