Coolest thing ever got cooler!

This happened a couple weeks ago, maybe it has been mentioned already elsewhere but I figured it was worth a shout.

The earth wind map has added ocean currents. Rejoice!

Re: Coolest thing ever got cooler!

Do they have a scale that shows the speed of the current? I see a color gradient but no breakdown in what it means one color relative to the next.

Edit: If you hold your mouse button over the color gradient scale it will pop up and tell you the m/s speed for that color.

Re: Coolest thing ever got cooler!

I love the earth wind maps but please, NO color coding. intensity works just fine for relative velocities. I hate color coded stuff. Lots of us hate color coded stuff.

You're right. This is the coolest website ever. I just put it on my iPad, the quickest way to view the latest conditions regarding weather patterns. Thanks for sharing.
