Ocean surface currents across the globe


Today’s Video of the Day comes thanks to ESA and features a look at ocean surface currents across the globe.

The clip was compiled using ESA’s Globcurrent project, which combines sea-surface height and temperature measurements with surface wind and gravity data from a variety of satellites.

A greater understanding of ocean surface currents can help shipping companies select the most efficient routes and cut down on greenhouse gas emissions.
