The WaterViz for Hubbard Brook is a new water cycle visualization and sonification tool for creatively communicating water science to the public with real time forest data. The WaterViz uses hydrologic data captured digitally from a small watershed at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, NH in real time to animate a visualization and sonification available to viewers and listeners worldwide on the internet. The WaterViz lies at the nexus between the hydrologic sciences, visual arts, music, and computer design, and provides a unique approach to interactively and intuitively engage the viewer with vast amounts of data on water cycle science.
