Good feature on NW tsunami debris arrivals

The LA Times has a good feature, substantive links included, on the dangers and concerns surrounding the arrival of debris from last year's disaster in Japan on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest.

Meanwhile, Curt Ebbesmeyer, dean of flotsametrics, is upset that people near the shore haven't been getting more notice of large debris on its way across, notably the drifting ship Ryou-Un Maru, which appeared about 150 miles off the coast before it was sunk by the Coast Guard.

Also there's the Styrofoam problem for marine animals and birds. Not good.
