Visualising Climate Change
Visualisation of pollution
Leading international researchers and developers of climate visualisation are participating in a conference in Norrköping, 3-5 May.
The causes of climate change and its effects can be difficult to understand and assimilate. To combat this, climate scientists have developed new tools to analyse and communicate climate challenges. Visualisation techniques and experience-based media can be effective tools to convey knowledge about climate change and its solutions.
The Visualising Climate Change Conference is organized by the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research, CSPR, and Norrköping Visualisation Centre at Linköping University, who collaborate with international researchers in visualisation projects on climate and sustainable development.
Participants include scientists from NASA's Earth Observatory, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA, Resources for the Future in Washington and the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology / KlimaCampus in Hamburg. Representatives of several planetariums in the U.S., Germany and Canada also present their climate visualisations.
