Ocean Surface Carbon Dioxide Flux with Surface Winds

NASA Climate Change= Mar 9, 2021

This animation shows air-sea carbon dioxide flux and surface-ocean winds from Jan 3, 2012 to Aug 15, 2012. Blue colors indicate CO2 uptake and red colors indicate outgassing of CO2 by the ocean, ranging from -5 to 5 mol C/m2/year. The pathlines indicate surface winds, which are one of the drivers of air-sea CO2 exchange. More information and downloadable video here: https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/4873
