Caption: Computer model of global sea surface temperature. Computer-generated image showing the sea surface temperature across the globe. The temperatures are colour coded from red (warmest) through green and yellow to blue (coolest). The model has predicted several real-world phenomena, such as the Gulf Stream (right of N.America) and the Kuroshio current off Japan. Large eddy streets are seen in equatorial latitudes, and large-scale waves are seen in the tropical Pacific. The model used a spatial resolution of 0.5 degrees of latitude and longitude and 20 vertical depth levels, combined with realistic ocean floor topography.
