Surface circulation and the distribution of pelagic tar and plastic

Surface circulation and the distribution of pelagic tar and plastic

Marine Pollution Bulletin 10(6): 160-162

Pelagic tar and plastic were measured along W in the North Pacific. Maxima in the abundance of tar are associated with convergent meso scale and with small scale surface circulation features observed at the same time. There is no significant correlation between abundance of tar and that of plastic. This difference in distributions is apparently the result of different input patterns or residence times.
