Deepwater Horizon 4DKMZ

We transform available 2D data into a 3D animated framework using 4DKMZ COLLADA & KML structures with Google Earth. Our goal is to provide a coherent 4D Common Operating Framework for data in the Oceanographic & Atmsopheric Domains including the Air-Sea Interface. Sample scenes are provided at higher resolution in the right hand panel.



This 4DKMZ sequence (above) features the work of Dr. Maria Josephina Olascoaga of the Rosentiel School of Marine & Atmsopheric Science (RSMAS), University of Miami. AOML.



The Simulated Flow Trajectories (above) are explained in more detail by NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratory (AOML).
