We have developed a three-dimensional toroidal gyrokinetic particle simulation to study tokamak turbulence. The gyrokinetic equations are a reduced set derived from the Vlasov-Maxwell equations by phase averaging over the ion gyromotion and keeping only the time and space scales relevant for describing tokamak plasmas. These large-scale simulations in complex geometry can produce gigabytes of data consisting of large 3D arrays evolving in time. Visualization plays a critical role in going from the raw nonlinear solution of these complex equations to a simplified theoretical model explaining the essential underlying physics
