Caption

Computer model of ocean currents. Velocity map of ocean waters, derived from a simulation of ocean dynamics for four years. The colours represent vertically integrated velocities, from red (fastest) to blue (slowest). The model has predicted many major currents, including the Agulhas (bottom left), Kiroshio (upper centre), Falkland (bottom right) and the Gulf Stream (top right). The wind-driven Antarctic Circumpolar Current runs across the bottom of the frame. The model used a spatial resolution of 0.5 degrees latitude and longitude with 20 depth levels. Wind, heat and salinity forcing were also included.
