The main goal pursued by scientists is to penetrate into the “heart” of the terrible tornado, to create a real picture of its evolution using the preserved radar data. As a result, a digital image of the hurricane appeared, to any point of which you can “go in” using the Oculus Rift headset, for which the virtual theater of the local university was involved.
The viewer has the opportunity to literally layer by layer to investigate the “body” of the hurricane. So, red color shows the places covered by the strongest downpour, and yellow – where the downpour gradually weakens.
3D hurricane models help researchers better understand the nature of their formation in real time and based on the data obtained, develop measures to counter the raging elements.
