Scientific Visualization

Main content

Scientific visualizations provide a look into the details and complexities of the climate and weather phenomena simulated by climate models. C2SM offers support in the areas of scientific visualization and also web programming.

In collaboration with the ETH Scientific IT Services (SIS) unit, C2SM offers support in the areas of scientific visualization and web programming. If you need support in one of these areas, please refer to the following document, which describes the different steps by which a C2SM-affiliated research group/project can request support for the development of a scientific visualization or web sites/platforms:

Animation of meteorological fields in google earth
The animation shows the increasing annual maximum temperature (compared to the mean over the 1951-1970 time period) with and without soil moisture feedbacks. [Based on Seneviratne et al. 2013, GRL and Vogel et al. 2017, GRL]
