HOW does ocean litter affect air quality?
- PaulaLv 77 years agoBest Answer
"Marine debris, also known as marine litter, is human-created waste that has deliberately or accidentally been released in a lake, sea, ocean or waterway. Floating oceanic debris tends to accumulate at the centre of gyres and on coastlines, frequently washing aground, when it is known as beach litter or tidewrack. Deliberate disposal of wastes at sea is called ocean dumping. Naturally occurring debris, such as driftwood, are also present."
That is definition of /;ocean litter" = marine debris.
from here :
It has minimal affect on air quality -- the only impact would be from oil or volatile chemical spills.
The sea water itself is affected much more than the air.
