EE features powerful 2D and 3D visualization capabilities for pre- and post-processing of the model. You can view the initial conditions and/or model result for any water column constituent, sediment bed constituent/property, and boundary conditions. These can be displayed in any spatial scales and perspectives with zooming and panning tools. Each display option has multiple sub-options allowing you to better understand and demonstrate the behavior of their model in relation the actual physical conditions, supporting informed decision making by engineers, scientists and regulators.
EE has impressive 3D visualization features including slices through the X, Y, or Z plane, blanking by user configured parameter values, fly-throughs and much more.
In the example shown, a model of Lake Washington is blanked along the I axis at a single snap shot in time to visualize the temperature profile in this vertically stratified system. High-quality visualizations assist you in professionally presenting and reporting model results.
Using the 2D map view of the domain you may view the model by layer or at a specific depth or elevation. When viewing by layer, you can view the parameter as depth averaged or each vertical layer individually. The image to the left shows dissolved oxygen on the bottom layer.
Vertical profiles plots are essential elements for calibration and analysis when developing models for water bodies with stratification in the water column. In EE, these plots can be quickly generated for one or more locations shown on the same plot.
EE supports display of a vertical profile slice or cross-section cut through the model domain for most parameters such as velocity, sediment or dissolved oxygen. This vertical slice can be along any I or J or can follow a user defined path through the model. This allows you to conduct detailed analysis of the model performance over time.
EE offers robust capabilities for extracting and displaying longitudinal profile plots when in the 2D map view. These are like the vertical slicing but produce XY line plots for any layer or combination of layers along the profile for any parameter being displayed.
