Circulation of Ocean Currents West of Antarctica[25-Apr-2012] This animation shows the circulation of ocean currents around the western Antarctic ice shelves. The shelves are indicated by the rainbow color; red is thicker (>550m), while blue is thinner (<200m). The ocean flow runs from the surface to 900 m, colored white at the surface and fading to light blue at depth, and is based on the ECCO2 model over a representative two-month period.Original Media »
