X-Tierra

Project X-Tierra studies computational earth and cosmological sciences.

Link to ./paleo/Paleo-web.php Paleontology. Visualizations from CT data of the internal structures of fossil specimens.
Link to Earth Simulator Project Oceanographic Simulations. Our visualizations help researchers understand the general circulation of the ocean in the global climate system. This is critical to our ability to predict climate changes and their effects.
Link to ./eas/eas.php Climate Modeling. We investigate techniques for visualizing multi-variate data to establish co-relations and understand relationships among the various variables which affect the atmosphere.
Link to ./geo-petro/GeoPetro.php Geophysical Modeling and Simulation. Our visualizations of the movement of water through an oil reservoir are critical towards determining the economics of the field.
Link to ./aero/aero.php Turbulent Flow/Aeronautics & Astronautics. We investigate vector field topology and fast isocontouring for the study of turbulence in vector fields.
Link to ./cosmo/cosmo.php Computational Cosmology The visualizations presented here are of simulations which attempt to follow these two mass components of the universe from their nearly smooth distribution in the early universe to their present highly inhomogeneous, clustered state.
