EarthSystemData was initially formed in 2008 as as a simple set of webpages providing latest monthly climate anomalies based on NOAA data. By 2018 we built an app service providing climate projections – now superseded by our ESD Research app. Since its inception the company converted to a United Kingdom Ltd, also in 2018, and began to provided sector-specific business and organisational-level climate solutions. ESD is based in the United Kingdom, with a presence in Edinburgh and Norwich.
Values: ESD was founded on the core principal of simplicity reflected in both the design of our applications and our service. We speak in straight-forward terms and communicate in your language. We provide the very latest data understanding of climate science and data but presented in your language.
ESD: //understanding change, changing understanding //
