Graphics are essential for understanding complicated meteorological processes. When the article PARFINIEWICZ (2000) was submitted, only 2D graphics were available to illustrate the stratospheric intrusion. Here 4D visualization was explored to understand the process. Also the domain was elongated above the tropopause to cover essential futures. The produced pictures resemble typical conceptual models as composites of fields which represent movement, pressure and potential temperature fluctuations.

Grafische Darstellungen sind von grundlegender Bedeutung für das Verständnis komplizierter meteorologischer Vorgänge. Als das Manuskript PARFINIEWICZ (2000) eingereicht wurde, stand lediglich 2-dimensionale Grafik zur Verfügung, um das Eindringen von Stratosphärenluft zu illustrieren. In diesem kurzen Beitrag kamen 4-dimensionale Visualisierungsmethoden zum Einsatz, um diesen Prozess verstehen zu können. Die dabei entstandenen Bilder ähneln typischen konzeptuellen Modellen, indem sie gemeinsam Felder darstellen, die für Bewegung, Druck und Fluktuationen der potentiellen Temperatur stehen.
