NCCS Hyperwall Show: GEOS-5 Modeled Clouds at One Quarter Degree (28-km) Resolution (Flat Map)
This visualization shows clouds from a simulation using the Goddard Earth Observing System Model, Verison 5 (GEOS-5). The global atmospheric simulation ran at a resolution of one quarter degree (or about 28-km) per grid cell and covered a period from Feb 3, 2010 through Feb 13, 2010. The results of the simulation were written out at 30 minute intervals. This model is a high-resolution non-hydrostatic global model.
This visualization was created for display on NASA's Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) hyperwall. This is a set of tiled high definition displays consisting of 5 displays across by 3 displays down. The full resolution of all combined displays is 6840 pixels across by 2304 pixels down. This movie was rendered at this resolution, then diced up into images to be displayed on each screen.
A similar, higher resolution visualization is available in entry #3723. This lower resolution version is for comparison to current operational model resolution output.
