5.03 Continuing Ocean Currents
I had selected the third bottle, that had followed the Alaskan and the California currents. The bottle started in Northwestern Canada and could have continued on the Alaskan current. However it may have hit the Kuroshio current and have possibly landed in California.
Factors that could hinder the progress of a message bottle riding an ocean current could be known as the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch." The garbage patch is as large as the state of Texas. An aiding factor could be the the force of a current taking the bottle in the right direction.
The formation of the patch is related to ocean currents in the way that they collect trash to accumulate in these areas. Garbage patches are very probable to form in the Indian Ocean.
Ocean currents may have differed in the time of pangaea as the ancient currents would flow around the continent.
