Question 3 Explanation: 

Both statements are correct.

  • The Great Pacific Garbage Patch also known as the Pacific trash vortex, spans waters from the West Coast of North America to Japan.
  • The patch is actually comprised of the Western Garbage Patch, located near Japan, and the Eastern Garbage Patch, located between the U.S. states of Hawaii and California (see image).
  • The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is not the only marine trash vortex-it's just the biggest. The Atlantic and Indian Oceans both have trash vortexes.
  • The entire Great Pacific Garbage Patch is bounded by the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. The area in the centre of a gyre tends to be very calm and stable. The circular motion of the gyre draws debris into this stable centre, where it becomes trapped.
  • Oceanographers and ecologists recently discovered that about 70% of marine debris actually sinks to the bottom of the ocean.
