Illustrating Global Currents

April 5th, 2012

Pretty stunning visualization, isn’t it? Here we have the ocean surface currents during the period from June 2005 through Decmeber 2007, designed by the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio.

A comparison was recently made by Mark Wilson of Fast Company comparing it to Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh. Beautifully accurate, wouldn’t you say?
