stamps: global-sea surface temperatures

Image from: uspsstamps.com
This new global stamp features a visual representation of our planet's sea surface temperatures. It shows the Earth with North America at the center and parts of South America, Asia, and Europe just visible on the edges, surrounded by vivid bands of color throughout the oceans. The image is one frame in a 1,460-frame animation created from the output of a computer model of Earth's climate by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory.

Global: Sea Surface Temperatures will be issued as a Forever® stamp at the rate of $1.15.
