Perpetual Ocean Visualization from NASA

This beautiful visualization from NASA shows ocean surface currents around the world during the period from June 2005 through December 2007.  Since most of the ocean’s surface currents are shaped by the wind, this visual can give us a sense of what the wind looks like over our oceans and can help students visualize why some places are better suited to utilizing offshore wind energy or wave energy than others.
