Monitoring Models for Plastic Debris

Abstract:

Article Preview

To strengthen monitoring for plastic debris in the ocean, our paper compared debris distributions of 2 special Garbage Patches (The North Pacific Central Gyre and Kuroshio Current area). And then we developed a computer-based optimal searching model to monitor formation and changes of debris in the oceans. We found that winds belts, currents, and regional human activities along with seasonal climatic variations can influence marine litter patterns and trends in deposition.
