  • Funded and stewarded by the Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program, and managed and operated at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) is the high-performance network user facility for the US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science (SC). ESnet provides high-bandwidth, reliable, and secure network connections to facilitate data-intensive research and collaboration in various scientific domains, including climate science.

    Recently the ESnet / BER Requirements Review Report was published, where E3SM was one of the case studies presenting the current state of its scientific process, and technology integration.

    The E3SM project relies on the ESnet’s high-performance network infrastructure and the software and services provided through Globus to facilitate the transfer of large volumes of climate data generated by E3SM simulations. This allows researchers and scientists to efficiently share, analyze, and collaborate on climate research using the model’s output. High-performance networks like ESnet play a crucial role in supporting data-intensive scientific research in E3SM. E3SM crafted a comprehensive case study document outlining its connection to Esnet, with the goal of recognizing the contribution of ESnet and providing a thorough overview of the present, upcoming, and future status, expectations, and processes crucial for supporting the project’s ongoing scientific endeavors. The case study was published in the Biological and Environmental Research Network Requirements Review Final Report released early this year.
