Abstract:

Article Preview

Based on the related current researches, this disquisition is focused on the problem of plastic debris in the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch. From three aspects-the extent, density and distribution, this disquisition made a research on the current situation of the serious problem, and then put forward a quantitative model of the weight of plastic debris in the Pacifi Ocean Gyre. Besides, by limiting polystyrene takeout containers, we established an iterative model to predict the weight of plastic debris access to the sea per year in the future. After proving limiting polystyrene takeout containers could reduce the plastic debris effectively, we carry on a detailed analysis.
