Visualising ocean surface temperatures

Here’s another beautiful sea surface temperature visualisation, this one from NOAA. It starts with the Agulhas and Benguella currents that wash South Africa’s shores, and then moves to other locations across the ocean. The dial in the bottom right hand corner of the screen shows what month of the year the data is for. I think it’s beautiful.

You can also view the video on The Atlantic website here, with a bit of a write up.
