Scientist to explore "plastic vortex" in the Pacific Ocean
|According to Xinhua News Agency, within the maritime territories of the Pacific Ocean that spans from California to Hawaii, there is a vortex below the calm surface of the ocean which is formed by the circulation of ocean currents.
This vortex is contributing to the accumulation of ocean waste in that area. With the movement of ocean currents, the waste left by human beings has been transformed into a giant "plastic vortex" in the Pacific Ocean.
The size of this "plastic vortex" is still expanding. In order to address this issue and protect the ocean environment, environmentalists and scientists are going to take a ship next month to visit and explore the specifics of this vortex.
