ICON Ocean Model (5 km) Spilhaus projection

The movie shows a simulation of ICON-O at a global resolution of 5km using a Spilhaus projection for the visualization of global ocean model data.

A Spilhaus projection depicts the world map with a unique perspective, presenting the world's oceans as one body of water. The map projection allows to see the global ocean flow between all ocean basins without the need to introduce artificial cuts such as the one at the date line within an cylindric equidistant projection.
