Satellite measured sea-surface temperature offshore of North Carolina at the start of the NRL experiment. The deep red colors (28°C / 82°F) mark the location of the Gulf Stream, while the yellow and green boundaries mark out swirling eddies and filaments that move Gulf Stream waters and cooler coastal surface waters around. Black streaks are clouds that block the satellite measurement. (U.S. Naval Research Laboratory)
