Here is another beautiful movie showing ocean fluid patterns (previous post here). This time we have a numerical simulation of the discharge of fresh water from the Amazon River entering the saltwater of the Atlantic Ocean. The ocean model (Mercator Ocean) simulates sea surface temperatures over a 3 year period.
