Project Title: Ocean Pollution
Problem Definition:
Ocean life is in danger for our plastic habit and our goal is to fix that by helping to get rid of plastic. The problem is that oceans are very polluted and because of that sea animals are dying. The project we are doing is how much ocean pollution a human causes vs how much ocean pollution oil spills does.
Problem Solution:
We believe a solution to this problem would be to get most if not all the plastic out of the ocean. We want to use NetLogo to build a model that will show how humans littering and oil rigs spilling affects ocean life. How much, How often, How far a human litters.
Progress to Date:
We have done some research to find websites that might have info for us. We have looked at example NetLogo models and picked one to use as a base for our own model, We decided to look at how much, how often, and how far people littering and oil rigs spilling happen in the ocean.
Expected Results:
We expect that human pollution will be worse than oil rigs pollution and will affect ocean life more.
