AVISO Image Gallery


This site from Aviso features a searchable directory of images and animations that are based on satellite altimetry data. These data are used to study ocean dynamics and geophysics in many applications, including climate prediction, monitoring of mean sea level, global warming, El Nino and La Nina events, marine currents and ocean circulation, and tide, wind, wave and marine meteorology models. Some of the many topics include climate, atmosphere, ice, geophysics, oceanography, tides and currents, ocean circulation, and others.
