Perpetual Ocean

Ocean surface currents from the MIT/NASA-JPL and Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean Phase II - or ECCO2 - collaboration and visualised by the NASA Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio. This visualisation shows the ocean surface currents around the world between June 2005 through December 2007. The animation nicely highlights the energetic turbulent ocean surface currents that are present in the real ocean but are not directly visible to the eye. Numerous people have also remarked that the visualisation evokes the Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh.
