High resolution simulation of the global ocean, showing the evolution of sea surface temperature over a 3 year cycle.
This animation shows the rich dynamics of eddies and jets in the Indian Ocean sector of the Southern Ocean, which act to mix ocean waters. It shows a high resolution (1/20°) regional simulation of the Southern Ocean, including a peek at a submesoscale (1/80°) resolving nested simulation. By Isa Rosso, Stuart Ramsden, Andreas Klocker and Andy Hogg.
