In the lesson, you learned about a debris convergence zone, or “garbage patch,” that can form in the center of the Pacific Ocean. How is the formation of this patch related to ocean currents? Where else in the world’s oceans are garbage patches likely to form? Helpp

    The ocean currents itself push the debris and garbage to form the "garbage patch" in the first place. These garbage patches can form any where theres moving water ideally due to the pushing and constant pulling of debris in the water-especially the ocean where oh so many manmade and non manmade "garbage" has found its way into the ocean.
