ESRL Global Systems Division

The GSD Information Systems Branch's work is focused on collecting and processing environmental data; providing tools and access routines to make those data available for use by forecasters, analysts, and researchers; and providing means for users to share information among themselves and disseminate it to customers.

Major projects within ISB include development work for the National Weather Service's Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS), in the Decision Support Section, and the Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System (MADIS), within the Data Access and Delivery Systems Section. See the section descriptions linked from the org chart below for information on these and other projects.
