ESGF Makes Climate Data Easier to Access

The Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) is preparing a series of upgrades to make its climate data easier to use and access.

ESGF, an open source initiative led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) along with Argonne and Lawrence Livermore national labs, “gathers and distributes data for top-tier projections of the Earth’s climate.”
