Volumetric Visualization of 3D CO2

(Cookies at 10:30 AM)

The Scientific Visualization Studio (SVS) recently created several visualizations of time-varying three-dimensional global atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere. The visualizations were created in partnership with the Goddard Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) using output from the Goddard Earth Observing System Model (GEOS), which includes assimilated Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) data.  One of these visualizations won Science Magazine’s “Data Stories” competition, and was included in the prestigious Electronic Theater at this year’s ACM/SIGGRAPH conference. This talk will show these visualizations and briefly discuss how they were created.

Greg Shirah received a B. S. in computer science and mathematics from the University of Georgia and an M. S. in computer science from the George Washington University.  Greg has worked at Goddard for over 30 year and has been creating scientific visualizations for over 20 of those years. He is currently the lead visualizer at NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio (SVS) where he designs and develops data-driven scientific visualizations for NASA public outreach.
