ocean surface current speeds evolving in time
This is a still from an animation that shows ocean surface current speeds evolving in time (Jan. 1993 to Dec. 2002) and projected onto the cube grid. Red are faster surface currents (for example the Gulf Stream).

With the help of advanced NASA supercomputers, JPL scientists are taking their cues from cubes to develop better models of ocean circulation and climate.
