Opened on the first of April, the new 3D show will continue to enthral younger ones on all days of the week up to 2015.
“We are happy that huge number of children are queuing up for entry to our new show. This new scientific show which won the best show award in the world digital film festival will help children understand the inner working of earth’s climate system,” said Naila al- Mansoory, head of Children’s’ City.
“It is out of our commitment to offer children of the Emirate advanced knowledge on surroundings with much fun and curiosity that we launch this show. We urge parents and school managements to make use of this opportunity,” Naila said further.
“With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes,” she explained.
Naila said, “Dynamic Earth explores concepts essential to understanding the climate like relationship of earth and sun, life and the carbon cycle, plate tectonics and its role in the carbon cycle, comparison with Venus and perspectives on climate change.”
This visualization also includes one of the largest simulations ever computed for hurricane Katrina. The National Centre for Atmospheric Research computed a complex numerical model that evolves the conditions of the storm resulting in a simulation that closely matches the actual event.
The visualization was created by the Advanced Visualization Laboratory at the National Centre for Supercomputing Applications, University of Illinois. The visualization shows the storm’s evolution over a 1.5 day portion of the simulation, as the storm gains energy over the warm ocean. Volume-rendered clouds show abundant moisture.
Trajectories follow moist air rising into intense ‘hot tower’ thunderstorms, and trace strong winds around the eye wall; rapidly rising air is yellow, sinking air blue. The sun, moon, and stars show the passing of time. The visualization highlights Katrina’s awesome power and fierce beauty.
Children can enjoy the show both in Arabic and English. An entry ticket to the Children’s City is all that is needed to have access to the show.
