Decoding the Mysteries of Color Perception

Environmental data and model outputs are often mapped into color to 
create visual representations. The choice of color scales, for example, 
can easily lead to misrepresentations of the features in the data.  
This is because color is not a single dimension, but three, and each of 
these three dimensions differs in how it communicates information about 
magnitude, spatial resolution and temporal variation. Color can also be 
used to highlight, segment, and direct attention, which can inform (or 
mis-inform!) the interpretation of the data.  This talk demystifies 
color perception and provides concrete guidance for its use in 
environmental sciences.
