GeoSat image of ocean currents

Ocean currents in the Atlantic. False-colour map showing the main warm-water currents of the Atlantic Ocean. These are seen hee as red patches. Toward top left, off the coast of North America, is the Gulf Stream. At bottom centre is the south- flowing Brazil current, forced into this swirling pattern by the opposing Falkland cold current. At bottom right, below the south tip of Africa, is the Agulhas current. This image was composed from radar altimetry data gathered by the US Navy's Geosat satellite in 1987-1988
