Modeling Oceanic Transport of Floating Marine Debris: A New MDP Report

Leave a comment

The NOAA Marine Debris Program (MDP) is proud to announce the release of our new report detailing modeling methods to assess the movement of oceanic marine debris. Understanding the movement of debris allows us to have a better grasp on how it might distribute and accumulate within our ocean and on our shores.This report reviews the scientific literature that exists on the subject and outlines the methods that are available to gain this sort of insight.

Check out the new modeling report, which joins our reports on entanglement, ingestion, and ghost fishing on our website.

The NOAA Marine Debris Program envisions the global ocean and its coasts, users, and inhabitants free from the impacts of marine debris. Our mission is to investigate and solve the problems that stem from marine debris, in order to protect and conserve our nation's marine environment, natural resources, industries, economy, and people.
