Welcome to the ESGF Node @ IPSL

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) and Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines and Pierre and Marie Curie universities. 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. At the national level, our task is supporting the IPSL community and ensuring the coordination with French partners and especially the national computing center (see Partner's page).

A large part of our workload consist in operational implementation and strengthening of the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF). The ESGF extends our task to the international level: we raise the needs of French partners on the forefront of the international discussions. The IPSL PRODIGUER members are heavily involved in the coordination and policy of ESGF and all its related services.

In Europe, we act as part of the infrastructure for the European Network of the Earth System modelling project (IS-ENES) by coordinating with European data centre (BADC, DKRZ). IS-ENES2 is the second phase project of the distributed e-infrastructure of models, model data and metadata of the European Network for Earth System Modelling. This network gathers together the European modelling community working on understanding and predicting climate variability and change. IS-ENES2 combines expertise in climate modelling, computational science, data management and climate impacts.
