Earth Day 2020 NASA animations

GEOS-5 Modeled Cloud Cover, with labels
This visualization shows cloud cover as modeled by the GEOS-5 atmospheric model, using observations as its input, over the course of three days.
The time period repeats halfway through the animation.
Visualizers: Greg Shirah, Trent L. Schindler (lead)

The camera starts under water off the coast of the Eastern United States showing layers of ocean currents from a computational model called ECCO-2.
The camera slowly pulls back revealing the Gulf Stream, one of the most powerful ocean currents on Earth. The camera continues to pull back revealing NASA's Earth observing fleet.
Ocean currents from the ECCO-2 model: starting underwater, then pulling back to see the Gulf Stream, pulling back farther revealing the Earth observing fleet

This visualization shows sea surface temperature (SST) data of the oceans from January 2016 through March 2020.
The data set used is from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Multi-scale Ultra-high Resolution (MUR) Sea Surface Temperature Analysis.
The ocean temperatures are displayed between 0 degrees celcius (C) and 32 degrees C.
