Researchers studied the paths of ocean buoys to create a model that represents the projected path of debris created by the tsunami in Japan.
The debris is projected to arrive on the West Coast in about three years. The animation created by the International Pacific Research Center uses a model based on buoys drifting on currents in the Pacific Ocean.
