Animation Control

Go To Frame =



Daily averaged surface currents (arrows) are superimposed with daily averaged sea surface height (SSH, color contours, units in cm) in the Gulf of Mexico. These are output from Gulf of Mexico HYCOM, i.e., HYCOM + NCODA Gulf of Mexico 1/25 deg Analysis (GOMu0.04/expt_90.1m000), provided by the HYCOM Consortium. Hourly snapshots can be viewed here.
