EARTH NULLSCHOOL

CAMARON BECCARIO


Software engineer Cameron Beccario succeeded in combining data from the world's most powerful supercomputers, resulting in an animated map containing current weather information from the Global Forecast System (GFS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). l'environnement.

Not only the weather is displayed, but also the various types of air pollution.



NEAR REAL-TIME VISUALIZATION


EARTH is a near real-time visualization of global weather conditions forecast by supercomputers.



DATA SETS


Integrated is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Global Forecasting System (GFS), version 5 of NASA’s Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS-5), and various other data sets from the US and EU agencies, as well as a few non-profits.

These are the same tools used for weather prediction and analysis. Although it is not meant as a research tool.



AWARENESS


Post people don’t think about global temperatures, air pollution, extreme weather events but local ones. Needless to say that extremes have a profound impact on people. Awareness of links between climate change and the local weather makes sense in public understanding.



VISUALIZING THE ABSTRACT PHENOMENA OF CLIMATE CHANGE  


Climate Change is a very abstract, large and remote phenomenon with 50 to 100 year horizon what makes it difficult to understand.


People are only perceiving their local climate conditions. Therefore making it difficult to comprehend and become cognizant of of the world wide key drivers that are responsible for Climate Change. The same goes for the strategies to mitigate and adaptations to the challenge of global climate change.


EARTH is inspiring, actuating and at the same time an effective motivator and mobilizer of behavioural and physical change in many climate zones of the world. The real time animations have high-quality data behind them and are one of the best animations of atmospheric and oceanic data. As well a visualization of al sorts of air pollution, greenhouse gases.
