NASA | Perpetual Ocean
The reason for this video is that we tend to forget how closely linked the Moon and the oceans are. The Moon cycles have a huge influence on our oceans tides. In this part of the planet where I live we have huge tides, as much as 7 metres (approx.22feet). This video was published on Mar 29, 2012.This visualization does not include a narration. It shows ocean surface currents around the world during the period from June 2005 through December 2007.The goal is to use ocean flow data to create a simple, visceral experience.It shows the global ocean and sea-ice.It depicts ocean eddies and other narrow-current systems which transport heat and carbon.Only surface flows are used in this visualization. The dark patterns under the ocean represent the undersea bathymetry.I sincerely hope that the continued studies on this matter will be able to teach us more about the link between the Moon and the oceans.
Enjoy and share………..
