Visualizing European Climate Change

Project reference: 1710

The project aims to  familiarise the successful candidate to use output data from regional climate models  and apply advance  visualization tools to present climate and climate change data in a user-friendly manner (e.g. contour maps, time-series, animated gifs etc). The project will include intensive post-processing of climate output.

 Project Mentor: Dr Eleni Katragkou

Site Co-ordinator: Ioannis Liabotis

Learning Outcomes:

The successful candidate will learn how to post-process raw climatic output to produce advanced visualization products.

Student Prerequisites (compulsory): 

Good knowledge of visualization tools and techniques

Student Prerequisites (desirable): 

Experience with scripting

Training Materials:

none

Workplan:

Week 1: basic training

Week 2: training in the use of WRF in HPC GRNET

Week 3-7: building of visualization routines.

Week 8:Final report

Final Product Description: 

The final product will be a set of graphics presenting key climatic variables in various forms ( e.g. contour fields, time series, trendlines, animated gifs etc)

Adapting the Project: Increasing the Difficulty:

More complex visualization tools will be attempted (e.g. 3D animated plot etc)

Resources:

Post processing tools and libraries are available (cdo, netcdfetc) in ARIS.HPC.

Organisation:

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki


Greek Research and Technology Network and Biomedical Research Foundation
