Gulf Stream, température et courant de surface

This visualization shows the Gulf Stream stretching from the Gulf of Mexico all the way over towards Western Europe. This visualization was designed for a very wide, high resolution display (e.g., a 5×3 hyperwall display).

This visualization was produced using model output from the joint MIT/JPL project entitled Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean, Phase II (ECCO2). ECCO2 uses the MIT general circulation model (MITgcm) to synthesize satellite and in-situ data of the global ocean and sea-ice at resolutions that begin to resolve ocean eddies and other narrow current systems, which transport heat and carbon in the oceans. The ECCO2 model simulates ocean flows at all depths, but only surface flows are used in this visualization. There are 2 versions provided: one with the flows colored with gray, the other with flows colored using sea surface temperature data. The sea surface temperature data is also from the ECCO2 model. The dark patterns under the ocean represent the undersea bathymetry. Topographic land exaggeration is 20x and bathymetric exaggeration is 40x.

Quelques pistes sur l’infographie du vent, les derniers développements introduisent une très belle représentation du vent que je vous invite à découvrir ici
Nous obtenons un panorama assez exhaustif.

Oeil de Neoguri
Visuel peu fréquent sur la partie nord de l’oeil. l’ombre portée des nuages implique un différentiel dasn l’expension vertical des nuages avec une ligne de tote beauté.
Pas d’explication.

Image 3. ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst tweeted this photo of Typhoon Neoguri’s “cloud cliff” from the International Space Station at 5am EDT July 8, 2014. At the time, Neoguri was a Category 3 typhoon with 125 mph winds.
