Perpetual Ocean: A Van Gogh-Like Visualization of our Ocean Currents

Hats off to the Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio, which produced this three minute animation called Perpetual Ocean.

The visualization shows ocean currents as they swirled around between June 2005 and December 2007, and it was all produced with a computational model called ECCO2. ECCO2 attempts to model the circulation and climate of the ocean, helping scientists to understand how the ocean will contribute to future climate change. It’s some heady science that also yields some visually impressive animations.

Thanks DJ
