Description:

This Earth science animation is designed to help high school students visualize the causal relationship between global winds and the temperature and direction of ocean surface currents. The animation presents a world map that shows the direction of surface currents, which are color-coded to indicate warm and cool temperatures. Moving the cursor over the map superimposes gold arrows that indicate wind direction. The introduction summarizes the relationship and calls students attention to the temperature of ocean currents around the equator.
