Perpetual Ocean

The movie "Perpetual Ocean", created from simulations carried out as part of the MIT/NASA-JPL ECCO2 collaboration as visualized by the NASA Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio - which has been going a little viral over the past few days - shows ocean surface currents around the world during the period from June 2005 through December 2007. The animation does not include a narration or annotations; the goal of its creators was to use ocean flow data to create a simple, visceral experience.

MITgcm ( the MIT General Circulation Model ) is a numerical model developed by MIT ocean modelers (and free for anyone to download and play with) that finds wide use within the oceanographic modeling community worldwide.
