Russian Ship Finds Tsunami Debris where Scientists Predicted


- Published on December 2, 2011 by the IPRC and the STS Pallada.

Ever since the great Japan tsunami on March 11 washed millions of tons of debris into the Pacific, scientists at the International Pacific
Research Center, University of Hawaii at Manoa, have been trying to track the trajectory of this debris that can threaten small ships and
coastlines. For nearly half a year, Senior Researcher Nikolai Maximenko and 6FLHQWLILF Computer Programmer Jan Hafner had only their state-of-the-art but still untested computer model of currents to speculate where the debris might end up. Now valuable sightings of the debris are reported from places where the model predicted.
