CCM2 T170 Precipitation, Cloud Fraction & Wind

These images and animations were obtained by visualizing large scale stable precipitation (PRECL), cloud fraction, and meridional wind components using a high-resolution (T170) simulation of the CCM2 model.

Large scale stable precipitation (PRECL) is mapped onto the topography along with two isosurfaces that represent the positive and negative (+/-20) meridional wind component (V). Negative is represented as a yellow isosurface, and positive is represented as a violet isosurface.
