Marine debris issues have been one of the major problems that every nation is facing around the world Several studies have reported the accumulation of marine debris both in Peninsular and East of Malaysia in terms of its distribution on different places, temporal and seasons effect and the major debris type found on Malaysian coastline. However, the study on route and trajectories of floating debris in Malaysia remains to be accomplished. A numerical approach could be a better view and improve our knowledge on the behaviour and fate of marine debris in our coastline. Particle tracking model was used to provide 1) the possible sources of floating marine debris, 2) the distribution of floating marine debris during different seasons, and 3) the trajectory of marine debris released from our coastline. We use the Lagrangian ocean analysis tool, OceanParcels software as our main framework to simulate and model the particle integrated with ocean circulation model and stokes drift from the GLORYS12V1 and WAVERYS, a reanalysis ocean model and waves by European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). Particle tracking model shows an acceptable agreement.
