NOAA Marine Debris Program - Japan Tsunami Debris: Information and FAQs

The March 2011 tsunami that hit Japan washed debris into the Pacific Ocean. While heavier materials sank close to shore, lighter material have been scattered by winds and ocean currents in the North Pacific. Items have already begun landing on the U.S. West Coast. See Japan Tsunami Marine Debris Joint Information Center and NOAA's Japan Tsunami Debris information and FAQs websites for more information and where to report tsunami debris.
