Antarctic Water Masses and Ice Shelves: Visualizing the Physics. Greg Abram, Francesca Samsel, Mark R Petersen, Xylar Asay-Davis, Darin Comeau, Stephen F Price. IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (2021) Volume 41, Number 1 pp. 35–41

Abstract

High-resolution simulation of global climate physics enables us to model how the climate may change under a variety of future scenarios. Such simulations produce vast amounts of information and dense datasets. If interrogated in tandem, these datasets can provide holistic, vital information on Earth's many integrated systems by revealing the manifold interrelated properties of the atmosphere, ocean, and polar ice, framed by real-world terrain in three-dimensional space as they vary over time. To accomplish this, climate scientists have joined with computer scientists and an artist to develop techniques enabling scientists to see these relationships. The impact of ocean water properties on Antarctic ice shelves illustrates the benefit of this analysis in understanding land ice melt rates and thus sea-level rise.
