ABSTRACT:
Community Earth System Model (CESM) output depicting hourly time steps of total column integrated water vapor (TMQ) across the globe for an entire year. The TMQ variable is represented by a 3D surface where the surface shape/height, color (black to white), and opacity (transparent to opaque) all redundantly represent the range of the variable's value from low to high. Time evolving patterns of circulation, seasonal changes, and proxies for hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons are made apparent. The CESM is a fully coupled, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth's past, present, and future climate states. This ultra-high resolution global model shows developing weather patterns in rich detail, and helps researchers understand the effect of smaller, more localized weather on the dynamics of climate at the planetary scale. The visualization is produced from model data generated from the Advanced Scientific Discovery awards on Yellowstone, the petascale computing resource in the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC), which opened in October 2012 in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
