Abstract: A system for real-time predictions of Great Lakes physics and transport characteristics is now being implemented. The full 3D nature of the predictions demands accurate, high speed computer visualized representations of the results and therefore this article presents the user interface for this system which fully integrates a graphics philosophy at every level of the forecasting system. Steering, tracking and pre- and post processing are possible and the full use of 3D stereo animations is being exploited to the extent of its utility.
