The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is the largest accumulation of ocean plastic in the world and is located between Hawaii and California
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, also known as the Pacific trash vortex, spans waters from the West Coast of North America to Japan. The patch is actually comprised of the Western Garbage Patch, located near Japan, and the Eastern Garbage Patch, located between the . states of Hawaii and California. This convergence zone is where warm water from the South Pacific meets up with cooler water from the Arctic. The zone acts like a highway that moves debris from one patch to another. The entire Great Pacific Garbage Patch is bounded by the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. An ocean gyre is a system of circular ocean currents formed by the Earth’s wind patterns and the forces created by the rotation of the planet. The North Pacific Subtropical Gyre is created by the interaction of the California, North Equatorial, Kuroshiro, and North Pacific currents.
The Great Pacific garbage patch, also described as the Pacific trash vortex, is a gyre of marine debris particles in the north central Pacific Ocean. It is located roughly from 135°W to 155°W and 35°N to 42°N. The collection of plastic and floating trash originates from the Pacific Rim, including countries in Asia, North America, and South America. The patch is actually "two enormous masses of ever-growing garbage
While "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" is a term often used by the media, it does not paint an accurate picture of the marine debris problem in the North Pacific ocean. Marine debris concentrates in various regions of the North Pacific, not just in one area. The name "Pacific Garbage Patch" has led many to believe that this area is a large and continuous patch of easily visible marine debris items such as bottles and other litter-akin to a literal island of trash that.
Nearly 80,000 tonnes of plastic are floating in the area of the ocean known as the Great Pacific garbage patch. Scientists arrived at this figure, which is around 16 times higher than previous estimates, by assessing aerial images alongside data from ships dragging nets through the region. One of the vessels involved in the study collects data on plastic floating in the Great Pacific garbage patch (The Ocean Cleanup Foundation).
Garbage patch persistency. In our study, we provide evidence that plastic pollution has been increasing exponentially in the subtropical waters of the North Pacific Ocean over the last decades.
The current situation of the great pacific garbage patch is seriously threatening marine life. So please sign this petition to show your support towards the clean up of the garbage patch so then we can inform the governments around the pacific to fund the clean up of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Isaiah Manley Pearson needs your help with Clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Join Isaiah and 491 supporters today.
Belen What is it? The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a large system of marine debris located in the Pacific Ocean. Out of the many marine trash vortexes that exist, this is the biggest. Marine debris is litter that ends up in oceans, seas, and other large bodies of water.
Did You Know? The Great Pacific Garbage Patch contains almost . million tons of trash in the form of light bulbs, bottle caps, Popsicle sticks, bottles, cans, fishing gear, polystyrene cups, shoes, toys, and even toothbrushes. Plastic constitutes around 85% of the garbage floating in this great garbage patch. Despite being discovered in 1997, the great Pacific garbage patch has been notoriously under-reported by the media. Much of the younger generation isn't even aware that the Pacific ocean has been carrying the world's biggest landfill for years.
Publication of the garbage patch study coincided with a new report from Britain, Foresight Future of the Sea, that found plastic pollution in the ocean could triple by 2050 unless a major response is mounted to prevent plastic from reaching the ocean. The report declared plastic pollution to be one of the main environmental threats to the seas, along with sea-level rise and warming oceans. The study included two aerial surveys in October of 2016 that took 7,000 images, and 652 ocean surface trawls conducted in July, August, and September of 2015 by 18 vessels. The surface trawls also filled.
