These data are from long-term, daily global
observations of westerly winds from the U.S. National Centers for
Environmental Prediction. The data set is four dimensional [time,
pressure (from 1000 hPa, near the earth's surface, to 1 hPa, near
50 km altitude), latitude, longitude].
The Slicer Dicer windows in this example depict
time-longitude-latitude, altitude-time-latitude, and
altitude-longitude-latitude views of these data. A variety of
blocks and cutouts are used to reveal temporal and spatial
variations of the zonal wind field.
