Description

This real-time animation, updated monthly, maps the distribution of the surface salinity levels on the world’s oceans, giving scientists an unparalleled view of the global ocean circulation processes. Overall, salinity plays a key role in general ocean circulation dynamics, global water cycles (evaporation, precipitation, water vapor, etc.), climate and sea ice extent. The Aquarius Sea Surface Salinity data is produced by NASA. The oceans are shaded according to the observed concentrations of salt on the ocean surface using practical salinity units.

Pedestal Systems

Bigger. Brighter. The Magic Planet pedestal system is free standing and offers the choice of three globe sizes: 24” (61 cm), 30” (71 cm) and 36” (91 cm). It’s ideal for brighter locations and larger rooms. You can roll it around the school campus with ease, so it can be in the classroom for lessons or in the library for enrichment at other times. It delivers value all day every day.
