A Portrait of Global Winds

A Portrait of Global Winds | 3B Geography | Scoop.it

"This visualization shows global winds from a GEOS-5 simulation using 10-kilometer resolution. Surface winds (0 to 40 meters/second) are shown in white and trace features including Atlantic and Pacific cyclones. Upper-level winds (250 hectopascals) are colored by speed (0 to 175 meters/second), with red indicating faster."

This global map of wind speeds is a great companion to this United States map. This interactive map is a 'nearly live' dynamic display of United States winds patterns (speed, direction and broad spatial context).
