Researchers at the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory borrowed some code from the designers who made this incredible wind map to create the world's first beautiful water current map. The image above is just a snapshot--check out the animated one here. Totally mesmerizing.
As I observe the currents, it is as if they are telling me by their swirling indication of an mysterious object buried in the center land mass having a gravitational pull on the water flow in some manner.
Amazed at the parochial mindset or ignorance of the researchers at the laboratory. As per this map, no major city or civilisation exists beyond the US north border. Keep it up!
Well actually, if you'll notice there is no civilization in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan either, where I am as I write this. I'm in our largest city, Marquette, and I can see right where it would be on that map, but I'm not crying about it not being there. They are trying to show people places they might know, in order to give them a reference. If they were trying to create a map that indicated what cities were important, they would have.
