Name given to large marinal areas where
rubbish collects in what
has become known as the 'Subtropic Gyro': a gigantic whirlpool in the middle of the the North
Pacific ocean nicknamed
'Strangelove Ocean'! (refers of course to the old Dr. himself!)
Concerned scientists has called these no-fish areas
'dead zones'* where
there is shortage of life-affirming O2. Other concerns relating to the depleted sealife-forms are the coral areas
in the Great
Barrier Reef that marine biologists call these vulnerable pollution-sensitive 'bleached'-out corals 'sea reserves', 'marine rainforests' or collectively 'endangered oceans'!
*Also called OMZs (oxygen-mnimum zones), 'paper parks'.
on Earth that have
the same problem with Garbage Patch are the Kleenix Trail in the Tibetan base camp at Nepal where climbers and tourons
leave their trash behind them and Crap Alley; the mountainous
climber-magnet distanation in Glencoe, Scotland.
