How much debris from the March 2011 tsunami that struck Japan swept out into the ocean and dispersed over the great Pacific? What have we found so far? How can we tell if the debris we find is from the tsunami, when debris is an everyday problem?

Find the answer to these questions and more online! The NOAA Marine Debris Program has put together a suite of information on Japan tsunami marine debris, including ways you can get involved and help keep our beaches clean.
Read up on the issue, and then share it with a friend!
Get the full picture with our Japan tsunami marine debris infographic. This infographic tells the tsunami debris story and describes the general movement we expect from debris.

Take a journey with us as we document marine debris spotted on U.S. coasts in the two years after the disaster. Check out our Google map with update-to-date information on confirmed tsunami debris items and our debris sightings video.
