I found an interesting gravitational map of the Earth, and thought we could have a thread here in Earth sciences for various mapping technologies, satellite, Ir, oceanic and the like.
Sounds like a good idea.
The GOCE geoid.
Here's the ESA press release:
Earth's gravity revealed in unprecedented detail (http://www.esa.int/esaCP/SEM1AK6UPLG_index_0.html)
If Peeps are interested, I can post links (when I get home) to some of the DETM's that are out there that I've managed to track down.
Nice link Trip. Puts a bit more flesh on the bones.
I came across a better, more interactive version in another thread... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-12911806

In case anyone wants to go back in time to see how a part of Earth looked like before, use GLOVIS: http://glovis.usgs.gov/
I think this predictive animated map of the Jet Stream is very good.
