In Dynamic Earth, the audience dives below the ocean surface and into a swarm of microscopic organisms that hold the key to our climate: DIATOMS, RADIOLARIANS, COPEPODS, and colorful OCTUPUS LARVAE: all rendered in exquisite detail for giant screens. As these creatures fade into the background, the audience finds itself in the middle of schools of JACKFISH and HAMMERHEAD SHARKS, before rubbing shoulders with an enormous HUMPBACK WHALE.

This visualization shows one of the largest simulations ever computed for Hurricane Katrina. The National Center for Atmospheric Research computed a complex numerical model that evolves the conditions of the storm resulting in a simulation that closely matches the actual event. The visualization was created by the Advanced Visualization Laboratory at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, University of Illinois. Click HERE for more info.
