This animation shows global evaporation with a clock inset showing the day/night cycle.
This animation of the global hourly evaporation shows how heating from the sun during the day causes increased evaporation over land areas. Two versions of this animation are provided: one with a day/night clock inset and one without. The animation was created using data from the GEOS-5 atmospheric model on the cubed-sphere, run at 14-km global resolution for 30-days.
