Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory VisGallery

The Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) develops and uses mathematical models and computer simulations to improve our understanding and prediction of the behavior of the atmosphere, the oceans, and climate. The GFDL VisGallery provides animations of scientific research results to convey complex information in graphic form. Visualizations are available for climate diagnostics; climate prediction (air temperature, water flow, Arctic sea ice changes, El Nino forecasting); hurricanes (Mitch, Floyd, Isabel, 2004 season, Katrina); mesoscale dynamics; and oceans (surface temperature, surface salinity, surface speed).

Maryland Coastal Atlas

The Coastal Atlas is an online mapping and planning tool that allows state and local decision-makers to visually analyze and explore data for coastal and ocean planning activities. The site provides shoreline mapping data for shoreline and flood planning in Maryland. The maps are based on erosion, storm inundation and sea level rise data developed from fifty years of observations, and display future shoreline positions up to fifty years in the future. The data available through the Coastal Atlas includes physical characteristics, human uses and ecological resources.
