Colleen Bushell & NCSA : Study of a Numerically Modeled Severe Storm, 1989
A series of images from a time-evolving visualization that analyzes the data from a numerical model developed to understand thunderstorm behavior. The models consist of mathematical equations that can be solved on a supercomputer. Wind, temperature, pressure, and other values are calculated every few seconds for several hundred thousand locations in the area of the storm’s development. The numerical storm grows in wind and temperature conditions observed prior to an actual severe thunderstorm.
Principal scientific investigators: Robert Wilhelmson, Harold Brooks, Brian Jewett, Crystal Shaw, Louis Wicker; Visualization by Stefen Fangmeier, Matt Arrott, Mark Bajuk, Colleen B. Bushell, Jeff Yost, Jeff Thingvold, Dan Brady, Bob Patterson; the complete video was produced by the Visualization Services and Development Group, NCSA, 1989.
