The model of the movement of garbage in the Pacific Ocean

The model of the movement of garbage in the Pacific Ocean Facts

Figure: Path spread wreckage and debris after the tsunami in Japan that occurred on March 11, 2011.

Almost a year has passed since the day when the earthquake happened in Japan, Tohoku, and in the Pacific Ocean is still floating debris, carried away from the shore of the tsunami waves. Debris weighing about 20 tons with sea Kuroshio Current, enveloping Asia around 35 ° N, are moving to the east and covers an area of more than 3,600 km long and 1,800 km wide.

Tropical storms formed a column

August 5, 2013. Early August — the peak season of tropical storms in the north-eastern part of the Pacific Ocean. GOES-15 satellite constellation of NOAA's August 2 hurricane watch "Gil" is flanked by two companions, tropical depressions — lower organized weather systems.

A day after the photo made, depression 91, which was in the most unfavorable conditions for intensification, has ceased to exist, and depression 90 was transformed into the eighth tropical storm "Henrietta."

Whirlwind to be almost in the wake of "Gila" and also intends as he become a hurricane. Under the most likely scenario, such an event

Beneath the Pacific Ocean is growing supervolcano

February 13, 2013. According to the Huffington UK, U.S. researchers from the University of Utah found at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean supervolcano, which is able to destroy the Earth.

Scientists say that two chemical bladder the size of a continent of partially molten rock, converge beneath the Pacific Ocean, and it seems that will create a new supervolcano.

It can bring the world scale disaster.

Geologist Michael Thorne of the University of Utah in the message for Earth and Planetary Science, says that the collision takes place slowly at a depth of 2900 km under the

A relatively new type of climate anomaly El Niño heat to the center, shifted from the east to the central part of the Pacific Ocean, it is becoming more frequent and more powerful — it can "messed things up" climate scientists engaged in long-term modeling, says the joint study of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL ), NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States (NOAA).

In the Pacific Ocean continues during La Nada

September 11, 2013. Scientists from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Meteorological Service of the United States argue that in the past 16 months in the Pacific Ocean there is a phenomenon known as La Nada (La Nada).

This pattern makes it difficult to long-term climate forecasts, climate scientists complain. However, the respite is not to wait until the spring of 2014, scientists sigh.

Experts have learned to make long-term forecasts on the basis of data on variations in temperature of the surface water in the equatorial Pacific Ocean (a phenomenon known as El Niño) and anomalous lowering surface

East Siberia — Pacific Ocean

Launched late last year, the oil pipeline ESPO-2 allowed for the first seven months of this year to increase the volume of sea shipments in the Far Eastern port Koz’mino at 3,000,000 tons compared to the same period last year, according to a statement on the website of the company LLC "Dalnefteprovod."

For seven months of the current year, the company "Transneft" pumped to the second stage of the pipeline "Eastern Siberia — Pacific Ocean" about 11 million tons of oil. With the launch of ESPO-2 in December last year, the volume of sea shipments to the

The expanses of the Pacific Ocean, one by one followed by three tropical storms. Danielle is moving west toward Hawaii on his trail is a new hurricane Emily. Off the coast of Mexico formed another system, code-named 98E. According to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, the probability that the system will become a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours is 80%.

After Hurricane Danielle category fell from the 2nd, he again gained the status of a tropical storm. Its location is fixed at 1,700 km east-southeast
