The applet provides an elegant and instantaneous view of sea surface
temperatures, winds and other ocean-air parameters across the equatorial Pacific
Ocean, Such measurements are used as indicators of El Nino events. For the
novice and general education, non-science student, it might be a tad thin on
explanation. With guided inquiry, it has great potential for understanding
physical structure of the water column, air-sea interactions, currents, El Nino
and global heat transfer.

Technical Remarks:

Quite simple to use - point and pop. Could use a link to an FAQ or tutorial.
