About the Carbon Cluster

This page is devoted to the activities of the ESIP Federation's Carbon Cluster. The Carbon Cluster was formed in January 2008 to:

  • Increase visibility of ESIP Federation within DOE
  • Identify users/potential users of carbon data and information; get their requirements & develop use cases (some possible initial targets: USDA, EPA, DOE, state decision makers, local decision makers, carbon trading/exchanges)
  • Document data products and services related to carbon that are produced by Federation partners
