The Evolution of a Hurricane
About this Image
A still from a visualization created by a team of researchers from the Advanced Visualization Laboratory (AVL) showing the dramatic evolution of Hurricane Katrina. The visualization is part of a full-length planetarium film called "Dynamic Earth," that explores the inner workings of the Earth's climate engine. The film includes visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputing simulations that explore the workings of Earth's climate, following a trail of energy that flows from the sun into the atmosphere, oceans and the biosphere. Both the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) are supported by the National Science Foundation.
