Oceanography in a mug

A looping GIF of a layered drink (milk on top, dark espresso in the center, and lighter hot chocolate at the bottom) being blown on. This starts to create the effect of the top two layers of milk and espresso rotating in a circle vertically: as the milk is blown to the left edge of the mug and is forced downward, the espresso on the right side is pushed up to the top of the drink.
When you blow across the top of your hot drink to cool it down, you are mimicking the same process that creates wind-driven waves in the ocean. If you use a layered drink as seen here, blowing across the top of the liquid shows how upwelling works. (Marissa Jones/NOAA)
