Global Organization for Earth System Science Portals (GO-ESSP)
What is GO-ESSP?
The Global Organization for Earth System Science Portals ( GO-ESSP ) is a collaboration designed to develop a new generation of software infrastructure that will provide distributed access to observed and simulated data from the climate and weather communities. GO-ESSP will achieve this goal by developing individual software components and by building a federation of frameworks that can work together using agreed-upon standards. The GO-ESSP portal frameworks will provide efficient mechanisms for data discovery, access, and analysis of the data.
The distributed nature of climate and weather data requires institutions participating in GO-ESSP to work closely together -- crossing institutional, agency and international boundaries. GO-ESSP has evolved into a collaboration that involves software developers from both Europe and the United States. Click here for the principal investigators.
