Virtual reality allows scientists to immerse themselves in the phenomena that they are studying. One such phenomenon currently under study is the dust kicked up by a helicopters down-draft.

This phenomenon is being studied because of the difficulty of landing a helicopter in a desert environment. Such a terrain would have large amount of loose sand that can easily be kicked up by a helicopter and interfere with the normal operation of a helicopter.

In order to study such a phenomenon, an application will need to employ a particle system designed to create such visual effects. A particle system that creates such effects would need to be able to handle the updating and rendering of large amounts of particles. These particles need to follow a well defined scientific model during the course of their life time.

Also such a particle system would need to be aware of multiple contexts, considering the virtual reality environment in which it would be used in. Sandstorm is a dynamic multi-contextual GPU-based particle system that uses vector fields for particle propagation, is presented in this Thesis.
