ESGF is starting to enable Globus as one of the options for downloading data to the user personal laptop. When available, Globus allows for easier, faster and more reliable downloads. "Globus Download" will show up as an additional access option when datasets are found by the ESGF Search, and when those datasets are saved in the Data Cart.
A user is allowed to start a Globus data transfer request by following the "[Globus Download]" link that will show up for enabled datasets (Figure 1).

There are two options for submitting this request (Figure 2).
Figure 2: Screenshot of the Globus download page showing the two options for submitting a Globus download request, a web download or a script download.
You will get a confimration that your download has started (Figure 3), but no matter how a data transfer request is started, the user must use the Globus Activity page to monitor their transfer. Additionally, Globus will send an email to the user at job completion.
