Visualizing El Niño
Taichi, one of my fellow grad students and El Niño modeler extraordinaire, has produced a fantastic video of what El Niño is and how it forms.
El Niño is one example of a kind of climate variability that is well understood by a small group of scientists, but very poorly understood by educated citizens. I believe visualization technology is one method that could help disseminate current scientific knowledge about El Niño to the educated public. Over the last year I have created an animation to communicate the essence of El Niño phenomenon.
The high definition versions of these videos can be found HERE.
