Re: The Winds of Earth

The source of that image has been linked to countless times on various threads here.

It's much more interesting than just that static image.

Re: The Winds of Earth

Hi, ian and sandra, welcome aboard CF. Take a look at Stu M's link, it's really neat.

Thank you for sharing.

Re: The Winds of Earth

Another Cool one is windty,-3.100,287.247,0

It shows a prognosis as well out a week or so. Both windty and earthnullschool show currents as well. Pretty interesting graphic. I had long suspected the little eddy currents in the southern ocean from out regular sets one way then the other, but it is cool to see them shown.
