  • Virtual particle tracking is an important tool in quantifying bio-physical transports in the ocean.
  • New tool enables this to be 200-500 times faster
  • This speed allows scientists to scale from modelling 100,000 particles to 100s of millions
  • This enables much better estimates of where pollution and marine larvae travel in  the ocean
