SciVis contest winners announced

Cloud dynamics play an essential role in meteorology. With the increase of computational power and due to the recent advances in cloud modeling, numerical simulations become available that include cloud evolution and precipitation processes at an unprecedented level of detail.
The HD(CP)² project was chosen to deliver the data for last year's SciVis contest.The tasks that had to be solved were Opens external link in new windowmanifold, ranging from a general visualization (of turbulence, atmospheric trajectories, up- and downdrafts) to classification and tracking of individual properties.

The Opens external link in new windowwinning entry was handed in by Noel Rimensberger, Markus Gross, and Tobias Günther from ETHZ. They will present their work at the annual meeting of HD(CP)² in February 2018. Some of their visualization are seen at the right side.
