HoloGlobe: Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly on a Globe
This is one of a series of animations that were produced to be part of the narrated video shown in the HoloGlobe exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and the Earth Today exhibit at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.
Sea surface temperature anomaly on a rotating globe for the period January 1982 through December 1988, as measured by NOAA AVHRR. Red regions are 2 to 5 degrees warmer than normal and cyan regions are 2 to 5 degrees colder than normal. The warm region in the Pacific early in this animation is the El Niño that occurred during the winter of 1982-1983.
