Caption: Water flow in the Gulf Stream, seen from space. This view, looking roughly south-west, shows the boundary between water in the Gulf Stream and the coastal waters off the eastern USA. Sunglint highlights the difference between the water - the warmer, fast flowing Gulf Stream (lower half) shows complex eddies whereas the coastal waters are calmer. The Gulf Stream is a warm water current which flows northward along the eastern USA, then across the Atlantic just north of the British Isles, having a large impact on UK climate. This photograph was taken by the crew of Shuttle Endeavour during Mission STS-47 of 12-20 September 1992.
