Mesmerising Techie/science-Ish Websites

Recommended Posts

Very occasionally I lapse into pure time wasting mode via aimless websurfing.

yes shock horror HPC is not the centre of my life :P

Amid the endless tonnes of garbage and wasted bandwidth that makes up the internet there are, here and there, some fascinating and educational websites (often representing significant labour and effort by the many creators and contributors) - and something new and fascinating gets my attention (and a bookmark/favourite).

So in a similarly altruistic manner, to that shown be the creators, I'll start off a possible list that other may want to add to by sharing this one

https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/isobaric/1000hPa/orthographic=-320.28,31.83,454

(you can dynamically rotate, zoomin/out, change display mode, etc)

Seen that website before and was mesmerised enough by the wins, but just realised you can show temperature as well and show both at the.same time at various layers of the atmosphere.

Cool
