The NOAA Marine Debris Program recently encouraged those who find large debris that is likely from Superstorm Sandy to tell them about it with our mobile app, Marine Debris Tracker. Ron Ohrel blogged that:
Much debris has been removed, but more remains. NOAA needs assistance in identifying its location, and you can help. All it takes is an Android or iPhone and an interest in cleaning up our waterways!
If you spot large debris items that Sandy left behind, either while participating in organized cleanups or during the course of your normal beach-going activities, please let us know through the Marine Debris Tracker. The information will be used to assist any future planning efforts.
See the complete blog post with details on what to tell NOAA about here. We are glad that Marine Debris Tracker can provide the tool they need at this time.
