The numbers are staggering: There are . 5 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean. Of that mass, 269,000 tons float on the surface, while some four billion plastic microfibers per square kilometer litter the deep sea. Scientists call these statistics the "wow factor" of ocean trash. The tallies, published last year in three separate scientific papers, are useful in red-flagging the scope of the problem for the public.
Ken Bruland, professor of ocean sciences at University of California-Santa Cruz, was on that cruise. In fact, he was the one who snapped the pic. He said the purpose of the cruise was to examine how huge eddies - slow moving currents - ranging into the hundreds of kilometers in diameter, swirl out from the Alaska coast into the Gulf of Alaska. Once these glacial rivers pour out into the larger body of water, they're picked up by ocean currents, moving east to west, and begin to circulate there. This is one of the primary methods that iron - found in the clay and sediment of the glacial runoff - is transported to iron-deprived regions in the middle of the Gulf of Alaska. As for that specific photo, Bruland said that it shows the plume of water pouring out from one of these sediment-rich rivers and meeting with the general ocean water. It's also a falsehood that these two types of water don't mix at all, he said.
During World War I, the ocean liner SS Maheno served as a military hospital. In 1935, when she was being towed to Japan, she suddenly disappeared and was only found a few days later. As it turned out, a violent storm threw the ship to the shore of a deserted island near Australia. This ship has been dreaming of the ocean ever since the last sailor left her. She was wasting her time at the port of Gytheio in Greece when suddenly, the wind changed and she was thrown back out into the open sea by a storm! They managed to stop her movement temporarily, but the anchor didn’t hold. So once again, the ship started rushing through the waves until she ran aground. The ship found her second life underwater: she became a home for countless fish, got covered in beautiful corals, and grew to be a real hit with the divers. RMS Titanic - a fallen giant.
Ocean Conservancy is taking bold action, working to stop the flow of trash at the source, before it has a chance to reach the water to choke and entangle dolphins or endanger sea turtles, or ruin our beaches and depress our local economies. Ocean Conservancy is leading the way with practical solutions that: Empower people. We lead a movement of people taking concrete actions every day to protect our ocean. We’re bringing useful tips to people on every street corner, creek bed and coastal waterway to empower them to stop the flow of trash before it hits our shores. Strengthen the science
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, which comes primarily from countries in Asia, lies halfway between Hawaii and California. It extends over an indeterminate area of widely varying range, depending on the degree of plastic concentration used to define the affected area
co on August 1, hundreds of days after the first release date for his new album was promised, it was a surprise, but not a shock. A report from The New York Times about an impending new release allegedly spooked Ocean, who pushed back his new project to an unknown date. But still, there was the video, streaming on his site.
