Perpetual Oceans – Die Strömungen der Weltmeere




“The video is Perpetual Oceans, and it’s made by NASA. It shows ocean currents, twisting and turning and undulating around the globe between June of 2005 and December of 2007. There’s no narration, just music. The idea is to put into images things that have previously only been words—here is the Gulf Stream, there’s the Kuroshio Current. Watching this, you get a better idea of oceans as a system, and it’s easy to see how—in the days before steam or gasoline powered engines—where you traveled to and from across the oceans was partly determined by how the ocean moved through that area.”
