An ocean gyre is a large-scale circular feature, made up of permanent ocean
currents that revolve around a central point. Gyres are formed by wind
transferring energy to water combined with gravitational forces of the Earth’s
rotation. There are five major ocean gyres found in the world’s oceans: the North
Atlantic; South Atlantic; North Pacific; South Pacific and Indian Ocean gyres.
Within gyres, waters are relatively constant, remaining stable for long periods
instead of circulating around the globe. Gyres have always been areas where large
amounts of natural materials, such as driftwood, seeds and pumice, accumulate.
In recent decade, plastic has become the overwhelming, unnatural debris in the gyres
Wind and water movement transports trash from land to the ocean where it is
carried by ocean currents to the gyres. The North Pacific Gyre is a vast region
that spans an area estimated to be 2-3 times the size of the continental United
States. There is a large area within it that has been nicknamed “The Great Pacific
Garbage Patch” due to the quantity of plastic and other debris suspended
throughout it. The thousands of miles of debris are best described as a plastic soup.
