Title:


    Dynamic Earth: Coronal Mass Ejectionand Ocean/Wind Circulation

Company / Institution / Agency:


  • National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA)

Description:


    This visualization is an excerpt from the full-dome planetarium show called Dynamic Earth. Using data from six computational models, it follows energy from the sun to the Earth. The sun’s energy drives wind and ocean currents. The three dimensional structures of the atmosphere and oceans are explored.
