Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


In this paper we describe how our recent high resolution North Atlantic ocean circulation calculations were visualized and animated. The calculations, performed on the Cray T3D at the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center, required display technology beyond today's limited resolution screens. We describe how we post-process the calculation datasets, the hardware required, and how interactive smooth-motion animation is achieved at full model resolution.
