Linda Vu writes that climate researchers are using Earth System Grid Federation as a veritable Silk Road for sharing data.

To ensure that climate information travels reliably from scientist to scientist, making it from “end-to-end” on ESGF, ESnet engineers worked with the climate community to deploy perfSONAR network-monitoring infrastructure. These tools, co-developed by ESnet together with Internet2 and several international collaborators, help network engineers identify performance problems across multiple networks. Once a problem is identified, ESnet engineers work with staff from other institutions to address the root cause and ensure that data can flow at the speed required for science.
