Wind is a valuable and abundant source of energy worldwide. The speed and strength of wind changes dramatically in different areas across the globe. We can harness the wind to generate electricity – Click here to learn how.
Researchers have developed a clever (and strangely hypnotic!) simulation of how wind acts across the globe.
The software also provides information about surface temperatures and other worldwide weather conditions.
Using real time information (the simulation updates every 3 hours or so depending on the conditions you are viewing), you can zoom in and out of seas, countries and continents worldwide.
So the next time you’re wondering how windy it is in Antarctica, now you’ll know!
