|The ESPRI-MOD working team designs, develops and deploys applications to support research teams from the IPSL. These tools are intended to facilitate the distribution, access and analysis of international climate data. At the interface between researchers and data, the ESPRI-MOD team is part of the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) which controls the distribution of global climate data. We manage deployment and maintenance of French datanodes and raise the needs of French scientists on the forefront of the international discussions. The ESPRI-MOD working team also provides support and assistance in the analysis of data by developing and updating various tools within the reach of researchers.
