Ocean Garbage Patch

The Ocean Garbage Patch, discovered in 2010, is a gyre of marine litter suspended in the upper water segment of the halfway Indian Sea, specifically the Indian Sea Gyre, one of the five major sea gyres. The patch does not appear as an endless junk field. As with diverse alters in each of the five oceanic gyres, the plastics in it break down to continually minor particles, and to constituent polymers. As with the distinctive settles, the field constitutes a lifted level of pelagic plastics, synthetic slop, and distinctive debris; fundamentally particles that are conventionally subtle to the uncovered eye.
