Volume Renderings of Hurricane Isabel based on the WRF Computational Model (Three Resolutions)
Released on February 18, 2010
This visualization shows cloud and ice data from an atmospheric simulation using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model. Clouds are shown as levels of white; and, ice is shown as levels of blue. Cloud and ice data from the model are volumetric (i.e. in multiple pressure levels).
Three different reolution runs are shown as the camera moves in towards the East coast:
1. 36 km per grid cell every hour covering most of the northern hemisphere (volume size: 415x270x27)
2. 12 km per grid cell every hour covering central North America (volume size: 438x300x27)
3. 4 km per grid cell every 5 minutes covering the US East coast (volume size: 300x300x27)
