AIRS Volumetric Temperature Data with Gradient Background (Fly Out)

This visualization shows Aqua/AIRS simulated volumetric temperature data for September 13, 1999. The data was created using the Finite Volume Community Climate Model (FVCCM). Temperature and cloud data sets were match rendered for cross dissolves in post production. This visualization was created as a part of the Aqua prelaunch package.
