This entry compiles a series of animations created for the use of WGBH in an educational webside. The animations visualize data from the MERRA reanalysis product, showing winds at both the 850 mb and 250 mb levels. The upper level is rainbow-colored, the lower level is white. Both color and opacity of each level are being driven by windspeed.
