  • 震災起因漂流物:Tsunami Debris On Alaska's Shores Like 'Standing In Landfill'(NPR)(2013年02月05日)

    震災後,アラスカの海岸には発泡スチロール製フロートが大量に漂着している。

    Refrigerators, foam buoys and even ketchup bottles are piling up on Alaska's beaches. Almost two years after the devastating Japanese tsunami, its debris and rubbish are fouling the coastlines of many states — especially in Alaska.

    At the state's Montague Island beach, the nearly 80 miles of rugged wilderness looks pristine from a helicopter a few thousand feet up. But when you descend, globs of foam come into view.

    Chris Pallister, president of the nonprofit Gulf of Alaska Keeper, has been cleaning up debris that washes onto Alaska's shores for the past 11 years. Marine debris isn't a new issue for the state, but he says his job got a whole lot harder when the tsunami wreckage began arriving last spring.

    "You're basically standing in landfill out here," he says, shaking his head in disgust.

    He points to an area scattered with foam bits smaller than packing peanuts.

    "This is what we're worried about. This Styrofoam is just going to get all ground up, and you can see there would just be billions and trillions of little bits of Styrofoam scattered all over everything," Pallister says.
