NASA Visualizes The World’s Ocean Currents, Van Gogh-Style



NASA Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio created an animation visualizing how water moves around the world.

The video ‘Perpetual Ocean’ shows the surface current flow of oceans around the world, from July 2005 to November 2007.

The white lines represent the currents, while the darker blue colors represent the “bathymetry” (ocean topography), according to Fast Co. Design.

The mesmerizing video—which resembles Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’—was assembled through a combination of satellite, location and computational data generated by ECCO2 (Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean, Phase 2).
