In this paper, we report on our ongoing research into multimodal investigation of geoscientific data. Our system integrates three-dimensional, interactive computer graphics, touch (haptics) and real-time sound synthesis into a multimodal interface. We present applications of multimodal investigations of geoscientific data that pertain to surface meshes on which several typical properties were mapped and to geophysical volume data. Finally, we report on the preliminary results of a psychological study, which is being conducted to increase our understanding of the recognition of audio value in an absolute sense.
