DescriptionHigh-quality visualizations of climate simulations are a critical tool for providing scientific insight and for communication with stakeholders, policy makers and the public. Here we present results from the cryosphere-ocean visualization project, which brings together experts in scientific visualization with domain scientists in climate, ocean and land ice modeling. We study Antarctic ice sheet and Southern Ocean simulations conducted with the MPAS-Albany Land Ice and MPAS-Ocean models in the context of ongoing development towards coupled Antarctic ice sheet simulations with the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Exascale Earth System (E3SM) model. We primarily use ParaView for visualization and ParaView and python for data manipulation and analysis.
