Aquarius Sea Surface Density (Mollweide)
[21-Nov-16] Sea surface density is derived from Aquarius science products. Density drives the formation of ocean water masses and three-dimensional ocean circulation. This animation shows the changes of sea surface density from September 7, 2011 to May 20, 2015, shown in a Mollweide projection. (00:01:44) Credit: NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio.
