Sažetak
On 21st November 2010, garbage accumulation has been observed on the southeast coast of Peljesac Peninsula, Mljet, Koreula and Lastovo Islands as well in inlets and beaches in the vicinity of Dubrovnik, Croatia. The heaps of garbage have contained mostly plastic packages, glass, clothes and other typical floating trash. The labels on the garbage items suggesteded that it arrived mostly from Albania. It is not unusual that a few pieces of garbage from Albania reach Croatian coast in late autumn, but the event was much larger than in other years. It is assumed that strong southeasterly ""jugo"" (sirocco) wind has intensified the sea current system that brought the floating garbage from Albania. It is further assumed that the garbage was washed into the sea by strong flash floods as a consequence of the torrential rain. This hypotheses will be investigated using available meteorological, oceanographic and hydrological data
