If I could get hm to, or Archie, or William, they might be interested in this. Mike was, he pointed out for me the doldrums, and the labrador current, and stuff. He is a weather enthusiast. Sailors tend to be.

This shows not only wind, but heat. I had a good time goofing with it.

Partner and I spent ages playing with this the other day too! We both agreed that it would be an invaluable reference tool for AoS novels etc. For one thing, it shows why you have to sail west before south to round the Cape of Good Hope. I also wish I'd had this when I did Geography at Uni, I was always crap at meteorology and I could never get my head round Coriolis Force :}

I zoomed in right away to look at the Vineyard and the Grand Banks.

This is interesting! And the lieutenants would surely like it.

Loved looking at this! The UK is certainly feeling that wind at the moment!
