El Niño: SST and SSH Anomalies from Sept. 1996 to Sept. 1997 (Pan from Front to Side View)

Sea surface height anomaly is presented as topography and sea surface temperature anomaly as color. A similar visualization (animation 139) presents this same data without the pan from the front to the side.
