Caption: Oceanography model. Earth globe animation showing wind and ocean data in the Atlantic Ocean, collected by NASA's Aquarius satellite. The data shown varies during the sequence and the view rolls from mid-North Atlantic to Florida, then to the Arctic. The first set of data is surface flows coloured by sea surface temperature (SST). The SST ranges from blue (0 to 13 degrees Celsius) to yellow (17 degrees Celsius) to orange (20 to 30 degrees Celsius) to red (33 degrees Celsius). This is followed by wind currents, followed by ocean surface currents. The final seconds of the animation show large-scale ocean overturning circulation (arrows), around Greenland and Iceland. These datasets provide a new perspective on the ocean and its links to climate and how the oceans may respond to climate change. This animation was produced and published in 2011 by the Scientific Visualization Studio at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
