The Deep Blue

Coming from an island, you gain an appreciation of the sea: of its many moods, and its powerful beauty. But while you think you may know the sea, you never can. It is unpredictable, and mysterious.

But now NASA's new Aqua observation satellite has started sending back its results. Among them are these spectacular images of the earth's oceans, in the shape of temperature maps. These will help us produce better weather forecasting models, and in the end gain a deeper understanding of the sea.

(And I've been amused by the apt music that's been playing while I've typed in this entry!)
