Efficient Visualization of Lagrangian Coherent Structures by Filtered AMR Ridge Extraction

IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, vol. 13, no. 6, pp. 1456–1463, 2007.


This paper presents a method for filtered ridge extraction based on adaptive mesh refinement. It is applicable in situations where the underlying scalar field can be refined during ridge extraction. This requirement is met by the concept of Lagrangian coherent structure... [More ...]
