After two and a half weeks, since only August 25th , the preliminary data have been exemplary, providing us with an early view of large-scale ocean patterns. Later, Gary Lagerloef of Earth & Space Research in Seattle says, "Aquarius will allow scientists to explore the connections between global rainfall, ocean currents and climate variations". "Aquarius' salin...
