Geospatial Forum with Dr. Sandra Yuter – Spatial Frameworks for Analysis of Clouds and Storms
April 6 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Dr. Sandra Yuter | Professor, Department of Marine, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences | North Carolina State University
Abstract: Deciding upon an appropriate spatial frame of reference is an important component of any observational analysis. Geographically fixed frameworks are not always well suited to meteorology, which can be described as the study of patterns within a moving fluid. Data visualization also needs to navigate around human cognitive limitations such as motion-induced failure to detect visual changes. This talk will address some general concepts of frames of reference and perception. Examples drawn from analyses of clouds and storms will illustrate different spatial frameworks used to improve understanding of underlying physical processes.
