SEASIDE, Ore. – Scientists on the Oregon Coast this week will share current information and science on marine debris left by the Japanese tsunami in 2011.

Federal, state, and local experts started hosting meetings Wednesday in Seaside to talk about everything from ghost ships to what to expect while beachcombing.

The bulk of debris should arrive on the West Coast in 2013, officials estimate. More: Scientists predict when tsunami debris will arrive

The non-profit group Stopping Oregon's Litter and Vandalism says it'll be ready when that debris does wash up. The group already organizes two massive Oregon beach clean-ups every year. All events are free and open to the public.
