What is the ‘ESD Lab’?

The ESD lab is a web platform that contains tools (i.e. mainly web applications) developed and maintained by few climate researchers at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (Norway). The main objective of this Lab is to build a prototype tool within the Data Evaluation of Climate Models C3S project. The applications provide users with web interfaces to allow them visualizing, exploring, and analyzing climate model data and outputs. These tools are built as Rshiny apps and are running on our own Shiny Server. The applications uses the ‘ESD R package’ as a back-end engine to process and summarize climate model outputs.

This platform and the following web applications have been developed and maintained by :

  • Rasmus Benestad (rasmusb@met.no)
  • Abdelkader Mezghani (abdelkaderm@met.no)
  • Kajsa M. Parding (kajsamp@met.no)
  • Andreas Dobler (andreasd@met.no)
  • Helene B. Erlandsen (helenebe@met.no )

We offer various R Shiny web applications
