Description:


    This demonstration uses the PSU/NCAR Mesoscale Model V4 in a parallelized form, running on the Intel Touchstone Delta, to create a 3D display of weather systems over a region of North America.

    Users are able to move around in the model space and view the developing weather systems as though they themselves were of regional scale. The representation allows viewing from any location and is directed toward displaying how physical processes interact as weather systems go through their life cycles, including moisture distributions, temperature changes along an air stream, topographic effects, clouds, and airstream motion.
