Title: Visualization of Marine Models: Water in Motion
Author: Oppenheimer, Peter
Abstract: Peter Oppenheimer will present visualization tools, including Virtual Puget Sound and Google Earth, that can help us understand complex systems, such as Puget Sound. Virtual Puget Sound can be used as a tool for visualizing scientific data and as a tool to be used in existing and new curricula at all levels. It can also be used as a tool for decision-makers and the public at large to understand the ocean and threats to it. What are some future directions? The project is extending the types of data visualized from physical properties of the ocean. Those physical properties can be tides, currents, and salinity to include some basic chemistry and biology, leading eventually to the simulation of food webs and their relations to physical oceanography.
