We would like to announce the launch of the ESGF user feedback survey 2020.
This infrastructure-focused survey aims to collect feedback from a broad range of ESGF users, CMIP6 modeling groups contributing data, CMIP6 MIP-chairs who have requested data, as well as the broader community of CMIP data users and stakeholders. The results of the survey will focus the development priorities for the next-generation ESGF software stack and website, along with the ESGF computing capabilities to be launched soon alongside the data.
This infrastructure-focused survey is being led by the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) in collaboration IS-ENES with the WCRP WGCM Infrastructure Panel to “take the temperature” of how CMIP data contributors, users, and stakeholders are working with ESGF to search, access and download data. We expect another science-focused survey led by the CMIP panel and focused on the possible design of CMIP7 will follow in a number of months.
The survey will take 10-15 minutes of your time, and is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3RZFPG7
We appreciate it if you can respond before Monday 20th August 2020.
We invite you to forward the details far and wide so that we can collate the most representative feedback for ESGF’s broad contributor and user communities.
