Title: Supercomputers Map Out Super Endangered Species — In 3-D

Description:

An example of the wildlife movement visualizations that Gordon, a supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, can generate based on the 3D MKDE probability maps that scientists can now create from California condor flight data. The blue and orange surfaces, respectively, represent one pair of male and female birds analyzed in the study.
