Exploring the Output from a Model of Coral Biomineralization

This user interface controls procedures which automate the search for regions of the model which match observations made in the coral. The user inputs several parameters representing the observations using 'setvariables' on the panel (right). The procedure then searches the model output for matching regions, and presents them in a surface plot (top left) and on interpolated images of the model output (right).

The user is then able to position cursors on the interpolated model output and make line profiles from the images to study the behaviour of the model. Three of the line profiles are automatically appended to a 3D scatter plot of the observational data (bottom left), allowing the user to study the fit between the model and the observed data in three dimensions.
