Japanese tsunami debris, FAQs


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently posted some frequently asked questions about the debris field left after the Japanese earthquake and tsunami this past March.

After the earthquake several Amver participants had questions about safe shipping in the area. There were also several Amver vessels damaged in the tsunami. This debris information should help in further voyage planning. NOAA is also asking for your help in reporting debris fields when you spot them. We learned about this release by reading Dennis Bryant's blog. If you don't read Dennis Bryant's blog every day you should. That's where we learned about this amazing website.
