AbstractAnimation of meteorological observations of the atmosphere, and the techniques for producing the animation, are presented. First, the design of the display frame is described. This includes numerous improvements over the static display frame that continues to be used for still picture production. The use of segmented, or partial, display frames is then described. The significant value of segmented display frames is pointed out. Results of both partial and full frame displays are shown. In spite of the fundamental problem of animating data that lacks continuity both in time and in space, the results show the value of such animation in displaying the temporal and spatial history of the data.
