The Season For Ocean Meditation

Watch this NASA film showing surface currents circulating in a high-resolution, 3D model of
the Earth’s oceans. Driven by wind and other forces, currents on the
ocean surface cover our planet. Some span hundreds to thousands of
miles across vast ocean basins in well-defined flows. Others are
confined to particular regions and form slow-moving, circular pools.
Seen from space, the circulating waters offer a study in both chaos and
order.  Mesmerizing.
