Pictured above is the East Coast of the United States, in grey, with the Gulf Stream, in yellow and orange, revealed through Sea Surface Temperature data (SST), made from the data derived from the MODIS instrument on the Aqua satellite. In this image, blue represents the coldest temperatures (between 1-10 °C) and orange and yellow represent the warmest temperatures (between 19-30°C). The Gulf Stream is easily visible as the warmest water in the image.
