Imagery for import into Google Earth

[West Australia, last 6 days] [2008-now]       [East Australia, last 6 days] [2008-now]
Click one of these links to make a map of the anomaly of 3-day average SST for WA or East Australia appear in Google Earth. If you select the 'last 6 days' link, drag the time slider right to see the most recent data. For either recent or old, zoom in to see 'snapshot' images of SST anomaly, overlain with altimeter-derived estimates of currents. Move the time slider slowly to load other days' data. Tip: Do not save this to My Places in GE. To refresh tomorrow, reload from the website.
The GE screenshot at left [expand] shows an ocean rower positioning himself to get a free ride with the current, as an example of how GE enables you to combine information from several sources.
