NCEP sea surface temperature anomaly and TOPEX-Poseidon altimeter sea level anomaly in the Pacific from September 1996 to September 1997.
Sea surface height anomaly is presented as topography and sea surface temperature anomaly as color. A similar visualization (item #1415) presents this same data and includes a pan from the front view to a side view.
Video slate image reads "NCEP sea surface temperature anomaly (Color) TOPEX-Poseidon altimeter sea level anomaly Courtesy of B. Cheney (Surface Topography) 20°N - 20°S, 120°E - 70°W September 15, 1996 -September 20, 1997 (SST) September 15, 1996 - September 21, 1997 (TOPEX SL) For SST, anomalies are formed with respect to the long term (1950-79) mean annual cycle. For TOPEX SL, anomalies are formed with respect to the long term (Oct. 3, 1992 - May 15, 1997) mean geoid."
