What do you mean by garbage patch?
“Garbage patch” is a popular name for the concentration of marine debris in the North Pacific ocean.
In the north Pacific ocean, you can test the water concentration where you can get lot more other particles. A huge sea of plastic trash is swirling in the North Pacific plastic content in growing in oceans world wide, It’s like a plastic plague spreading all over the ocean.
8Millions metric ton’s of plastic enter’s the ocean, world wide in a year.
The great pacific garbage patch, it stretches across the north Pacific ocean. It is like a floating tank yard on the high seas. It is like a large continuous patch of visible marine debris items, Such as bottle and other latter akin to a literal island of trash that should be visible with satellite or aerial photographers. There are high concentrations of litter item’s can be found in this area, much of the debris is actually small pieces of floating plastic that are not immediately evident to the naked eye.
What is it made of?
The great Pacific garbage patch has sometimes been described as a “trash island” but it’s not true. According to Holly Bamford forever director of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration (NOAA) marine debris program. It looks like a huge mass of garbage, populated by million’s of small trash island’s that may be hidden under water or spread out over many miles. A recent report from ocean voyages has confirmed the garbage patch covers an enormous sea. It is very dense in some places. Some plastic is not biodegradable, so it remains in the ocean for a long time. Some plastic is microscopic, so sometimes it may be eaten by marine organisms & entering into the food chain. Ocean debris is continuously mixed by wind and wave action and widely dispersed both over huge surface areas through out the top portion of the water column. It is very difficult to locate the “garbage patch” area’s in the Pacific and see very little or no debris on the water surface. It is also difficult to estimate the size of these “patches” Because of the border’sand content constant by change with ocean currents and winds. It is very difficult to locate the exact size, mass, & location of the debris. Manmade debris does not belong in our oceans & waterways.
Debris found in the ocean in any region can easily be ingested by marine species causing choking, starvation and other impairments.
