Caption

Computer model of global sea surface temperature. Computed sea surface temperatures mapped onto a sphere. 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 (upper right) and the Falkland current off South America (lower right). 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.
