Weddell Sea Animation at 1/10 deg resolution
Weddell Sea Animation at 1 deg resolution
There are other nice animations here too:
Weddell Sea (like above) but with SST colorized. High-resolution animation.
Okhotsk Sea ice with SST colorized. High-resolution animation. Or try this link.
This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. OPP-0938204 (to Cecilia Bitz). Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recomendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Cecilia Bitz made these animations from integrations made by the PetaApps Modeling Team. The original members of the PetaApps team are supported by the NSF Office of Cyberinfrastructures. They have since adopted several members, including Cecilia.
Computing was done on Kraken at the National Institute for Computational Science through a computing grant on the TeraGrid (now called XSEDE), which is also funded by NSF.
