This map on Mercator's projection gives detailed information on ocean currents, with warm waters depicted in red and cold waters in blue. Beautifully and finely engraved as is characteristic with these maps. An additional map at bottom center shows water temperatures during the coldest month of the year, which is flanked with North and South Polar hemispheres.
