Volumetric Renderings of Hurricane Isabel based on the WRF Computational Model: close up with winds
Released on December 11, 2009
This visualization shows cloud and ice data from an atmospheric simulation using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model. Clouds are shown as shades of white and ice is shown as shades of blue. Cloud and ice data from the model are volumetric (with a volume size of 300x300x27 cells). Winds are represented by moving arrows. The arrows are colored from blue (lower altitudes) to white (higher altitudes). Each of these data sets were from simulations at 3. 4 km per grid cell every 5 minutes for the East coast near where Isabel made landfall.
