The Greenland Current

[25-Mar-2019] This image shows the bathymetry (shape and depth) of the ocean floor around Greenland. The blue arrows show the Greenland current, which flows around the southern tip of Greenland. The currents are from the ECCO ocean circulation model. To enhance the view of the ocean currents, the bathymetry of the ocean floor has been exaggerated by a factor of 30x.
