FVCOM-Simulated Currents

Animation of the near-surface current vectors for May 1999. The current vectors were selected to provide a viewable picture. The wind stress over the lake was calculated based on the interpolation field of NOAA buoys and coastal meteorological stations with land-lake correction.
