IMAGe Brown Bag Seminar - Spatio-Temporal Climate Reconstructions of the Last Deglaciation

Spatio-Temporal Climate Reconstructions of the Last Deglaciation

Nils Weitzel

Meteorological Institute of the University of Bonn

Spatio-temporal reconstructions of past climate are important to understand the large scale behavior of the climate system and the sensitivity to forcing changes. Unfortunately, they are subject to large uncertainties, have to deal with a complex proxy-climate structure, and a physically reasonable interpolation between the sparse proxy observations is difficult.

Science On A Sphere Explorer - Seminar and Demo!

SOSx runs in a multi-display setup with a touch screen in museums and schools, and also includes virtual reality support via the Facebook/Oculus Rift. A tour builder application is included to enable teachers and museum staff to create their own tours of custom datasets and regions of the globe. SOSx visualizes satellites in orbit and environmental data at regional and global scales. It also includes interactive scenes (mini-games), such as walking on the moon, piloting a submarine around a coral reef, or surviving a tornado.
