Nikolai Maximenko gave an overview on how marine debris is propelled through the open ocean while Jan used this information to focus on observations of the debris field produced after the 2011 earthquake on the Pacific Coast of Japan. For those who may have missed the live event, or want to re-listen, all footage is now archived online here!
