Visualizing Hurricane Katrina

June 30, 2010
isualizing Hurricane Katrina A four-member team at the Center for Computation and Technology (CCT) at Louisiana State University used supercomputing to create a complete three-dimensional picture of Hurricane Katrina showing multiple elements and integrating data from many sources. CCT is part of several initiatives that are using supercomputers to perform simulations of tropical storm and hurricane events such as Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, two storms that devastated Louisiana and the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico, in order to better understand the science of storms and ensure more accurate predictions in the future. To learn more about this research, visit the project's Web site at http://www.cct.lsu.edu/projects/sc05/index.php. (Date of Image: October 2005)
