Hurricane Bonnie (1998) Dissolving 'Crystal Cathedral' View of Precipitation With TRMM Data

  • Released Monday, March 13, 2000

This is another experiment in using transparency to represent isosurfaces from TRMM data.

A fly in to a set of nested 3D isosurfaces of constant precipitation density for Hurricane Bonnie, measured by TRMM on August 22, 1998. The isosurfaces are removed one by one until only the highest density surface remains, then the surfaces are restored in reverse order.
