On Earth Day 2014 (April 22) the U.S. Postal Service officially unveiled a new Forever® international-rate stamp inspired by a simulation of sea surface temperatures from a @NOAA model of the Earth's climate. The round stamp depicts the globe with North America in the center, surrounded by vivid bands of blue, green and red, signifying the varying temperatures of sea-surface waters.

*Learn more about science behind the stamp from NOAA's Office of Oceanic & Atmospheric Research at http://go.usa.gov/kn9W. More about the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory can be found at http://www.gfdl.noaa.gov.
