This page contains several visualizations which have been prepared in the course of the Global Fluid Dynamics Laboratory's (GFDL) research. Images cover topics such as hurricanes, global warming, radiative transfer, stratospheric processes, El Nino, cyclones and storms, Jupiter and Mars. Some topics also include animations and detailed descriptions. These are offered as examples of various visualization techniques and how they might be used to convey complex results as understandable images. A number of visualizations are also available in the form of annotated handouts.
