Visualization of global precipitation and wind speed

  • By Barcelona Supercomputing Center


Combined visualization of precipitation and wind velocity during July 2013. Both datasets collected from ERA5, 1 hour temporal resolution.

The original data was converted to OpenVDB format using proprietary tools, and loaded into Houdini for visual encoding: The wind velocity vector field was used to advect particles while the precipitation values were mapped on the size and color of bars. Final render with Arnold.
