This video shows sea surface temperature results and their seasonal variation from a numerical simulation modeling circulation in the atmosphere and oceans. Modeling such enormous problems requires the development of reasonable models of the turbulent physics, clever algorithms to quickly progress the solutions, relatively low-fidelity (a single grid node may cover tens of kilometers), and enormous computing power. (Video credit: NOAA; via Gizmodo)
