Caption: This NOAA video shows the March 11, 2011, Japanese tsunami, the debris created by its force and that debris being carried out to sea. It incorporates a NOAA ocean model animation using University of Hawaii data to project where and when debris might make landfall on US coastlines (in Hawaii this winter), US and Canadian Pacific coast in 2013, and then head back to Hawaii in 2014.
