Welcome to the ESGF Node @ IPSL

The Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) consists of federated data centres that enable access to the largest archive of climate data world-wide. You are here at the the Pierre Simon Laplace Institute (IPSL) ESGF node. This portal allows you to find, select and download data files held in the globally distributed ESGF archives.

The Pierre Simon Laplace Institute (IPSL) is a research federation from the National Centre of Scientific Research (CNRS) in close relationship with the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines University and Sorbonne University (SU). The IPSL counts 9 laboratories and about 1,400 researches in climate science.

The PRODIGUER working team is part of climate modelling section of the IPSL. A large part of our workload consist in operational implementation and strengthening of the ESGF, coordinating its policy and all its related services. We act as part of the infrastructure for the European Network of the Earth System modelling project (IS-ENES).
