Established and Advanced Techniques for Visual Exploration of Climate Data

Visualization is an important method to represent results of climate

simulations and measurements. A variety of methods including 2d-maps, graphs

and scatterplots have been established as a standard in everyday climate

research. However, the manyfold of data (spatial, temporal and multi-variate

data sets) incooperated in current climate and climate impact research

require enhanced visual metaphors (see e.g. the current IPCC report).

Furthermore, interactive visual analysis allows new insights into the large

climate data sets (e.g. multi-run simulation data) and can benefit from

alternative techniques known from visualization literature. Therefore, this

talk adresses both established and alternative visualization techniques and

their application potentials for climate and climate impact research.
