Data Center Description
The mission of ESRL's Global Systems Division (GSD) is to conduct research and development to provide NOAA and the Nation with systems that deliver global environmental information and forecast products ranging from short-term weather predictions to longer-term climate forecasts.
Incorporating new findings in atmospheric, oceanic, and hydrologic sciences, these systems are designed to improve our understanding of climate and weather at all time scales through new observation techniques, innovative diagnostic and predictive models, advanced computational analysis, and leading-edge workstation display technology.
These advancements are then transferred to operational weather and climate forecasting services and other users of environmental information.
