Paleoclimate Model Output Visualization


Visualization example The Paleoclimate Model Output Visualization Tool displays map images for the following paleoclimate simulations from COHMAP (CCMO and CCM1), the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS Model II and II') and NCAR. There is also a link to a page containing visualization tools for models from the Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project (PMIP) database.

This page displays map images for the following paleoclimate simulations from the database at the Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project (PMIP) website. Extensive documentation on all model runs is available there as well as a database of netCDF files of the data presented below.

Acknowledgements

We would like to acknowledge development of the basic WEB IMAGE SPREADSHEET TOOL by Ian E. Sprod (NOAA-NGDC-GLOBE) as a general purpose data browse and comparison tool for the WWW. Ed Gille (NOAA-NGDC Paleoclimatology) has modified the tool to display paleoclimate model output using IDL to create GIF images.
