If you are searching for great pacific garbage patch, garbage island pictures, pacific garbage patch and great eastern garbage patch or north pacific gyre then you must check out this post.
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch in the central North Pacific Ocean located roughly between 135° to 155°W and 35° to 42°N and estimated to be twice the size of Texas.
The patch is characterized by exceptionally high concentrations of suspended plastic, chemical sludge, and other debris that have been trapped by the currents of the North Pacific Gyre. Despite its size and density, the patch is not visible from satellite photography because it consists of very small pieces, almost invisible to the naked eye and most of its contents are suspended beneath the surface of the ocean.
Due to the intersection of several major currents, the amount of trash floating in the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch is said to be twice the size of Texas.
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch has sometimes been described as a "trash island," but that's a misconception. Instead, it's like a galaxy of garbage, populated by billions of smaller trash islands that may be hidden underwater or spread out over many miles.
