GATE cloud system visualization

GATE cloud system visualization

This image is one in a series of scientific visualizations depicting the formation and evolution of cloud systems over a seven-day period in the eastern tropical Atlantic.

Xiaoqing Wu, Wojciech W. Grabowski, Mitchell W. Moncrieff, and William D. Hall of NCAR's Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology Division ran a Cloud Resolving Model using data from a unique 3D experiment performed during 1-7 September 1974 during the Global atmospheric research program Atlantic Tropical Experiment (GATE).

Tim Scheitlin of SCD generated the series of visualizations, which represent the model output of the seven-day computer simulation, using an NCAR stereo-enhanced version of Vis5D.
