Description: The Earth System Grid (ESG) a DOE SciDAC sponsored project, provides access to data, models, and tools for the global climate change research community.
The Earth System Grid (ESG) a DOE SciDAC sponsored project, provides access to data, models, and tools for the global climate change research community. The effort is a collaboration among six national laboratories and one university: Argonne National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the Information Sciences Institute at the University at Southern California. ESG primarily provides access to a 150TB collection of climate and ocean model data including datasets for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It also serves as a central point for community distribution of the CCSM model itself, as well as other related datasets and analysis and visualization tools.
