Watch surface currents circulate in this high-resolution, 3D model of the Earth’s oceans.[youtube]g3mt30cu8l4[/youtube]
Driven by wind and other forces,
currents on the ocean surface cover our planet.
Some span hundreds to thousands of miles across vast ocean basins in well-defined flows.
Others are confined to particular regions and form slow-moving, circular pools.
Seen from space,
the circulating waters offer a study in both chaos and order.
