U, V components and geostrophic velocity vectors over a small area of the North Atlantic, on August 21, 2002. Geostrophic velocities are derived from the sea level anomaly slope, with U (zonal velocity) and V (meridian velocity) combined to give velocity vectors. The Live Access Server able to plot these variables (even if it's better not to try over an area larger than 10°x10° for vectors).
