The Portrait of Global Winds

global atmospheric modeling by NASA’s Goddard Earth Observing System Model

This high-resolution global atmospheric modeling by NASA’s Goddard Earth Observing System Model (GEOS-5), provides a unique tool to study the role of weather within Earth’s climate system. It is capable of simulating worldwide weather at resolutions as fine as 3.5 kilometers.   Image © William Putman/NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
