Update on this tsunami debris post from last week. According to Reuters, NOAA has located a Japanese fishing boat drifting off the coast of western Canada, which it identifies as the “first” sign of tsunami debris from Japan. Of course, if NOAA followed Curt Ebbesmeyer’s beachcombers’ network, it would know that other debris has likely already arrived in the form of fishing floats. NOAA is now revising its prediction for debris arrival based on the profile of the debris — how high it sits in the water, which makes it move faster — exactly the modeling that Ebbesmeyer conducted using OSCURS. NOAA modeling now concurs with his — debris should be arriving, well, now.
