Caption: Sea surface temperature simulation. Screenshot from a simulation of sea surface temperatures (SST) around southern Africa as modelled by the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL). This is a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The key shows that this point in the simulation is in February (lower right) and includes a colour-coded temperature scale (lower left) in degrees Celsius. The temperatures range from cold (white and blue) to cool (green) to warm (yellow and red) to hot (black). The simulation, published in 2008, shows eddies in various major ocean currents.
