ESGF Fact Sheet The Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) peer-to-peer enterprise system is an interagency and international effort led by the U.S. Department of Energy, and co-funded by National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Science Foundation, as well as international laboratories including the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, the German Climate Computing Centre, the Australian National University/National Computational Infrastructure, and the British Atmospheric Data Center.

ESGF R&D100 2013 The Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF, esgf.org) is an international collaboration for the software that powers most global climate change research, notably assessments by the International Panel on Climate Change. The portal below is for the Program for Climate Modeling Diagnosis and Intercomparison at Livermore, one of dozens federated around the world.

Lessons learned from moving Earth System Grid data sets over a 20 Gbps wide-area network In this paper, we report on obstacles overcome and the key lessons learned in moving a small portion (10 TB) of the multimodel Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, Phase 3 data set used in the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report from three sources—the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC)—to the 2009 Supercomputing conference (SC09) show floor in Portland, Oregon.

Experience Report on the Supercomputing 2009 Bandwidth Challenge from the Perspective of the Earth System Grid The Supercomputing 2009 (SC09) Bandwidth Challenge entry titled, “High Performance GridFTP Transport of Earth System Grid (ESG) Data,” demonstrated high-performance GridFTP transport of climate data from multiple Department of Energy laboratories to the targeted SC09 showroom floor. The transferred multi-terabyte data consisted of a small portion of the multi-model Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, Phase 3 (CMIP-3) data set used in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4).
