Oceanographer Curt Ebbesmeyer holds a necklace made of ocean flotsam as he talks about how debris from Japan will wash ashore in Washington, as he sits at a Puget Sound beach Wednesday, March 30, 2011, in Seattle. Ebbesmeyer, who has traced Nike sneakers, rubber bath toys and hockey gloves spilled from Asian shipping containers over the decades, expects the first items of flotsam from Japan's tsunamis and earthquake to hit West Coast beaches in a year. He says derelict fishing vessels may show up first, while other items like pieces from wooden homes and rubber survey stakes may take two to three years. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
