STOQS used to visualize turbidity currents – poster at AGU 2017

Though STOQS was initially created to visualize upper water column data, it has also proven adept at visualizing Benthic Event Detector data in support of a marine geology study. Results from the Coordinated Canyon Experiment were presented at the Fall 2017 Meeting of the American Geophysical Union meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. Here is a PDF of the poster (21MB) that describes how geologists used the spatial 3D visualization feature of STOQS to understand data from the experiment.


This is the first blog entry on, a web site for general postings about using STOQS, the Spatial Temporal Oceanographic Query System. It supplements the repository web site that is currently hosted at
