Our Computational Visualization Center, collaborates with Earth Simulator Center(Dr. Tetsuya Sato), Yokohama, Japan for extremely large the datasets (22GB). Their transient oceanographic dataset consists of 5 variables: temperature, salinity, U, V, W (velocity) and 4 timesteps spread over 3days. Our parallel visualization software has been applied to a range of oceanographic datasets, and several volumetric rendering and movies have been published summarized on our project webpage for the Earth Simulator Project.
