Instrument collections* at three fixed sites around the globe, two mobile facilities, and an aerial facility are operated by the ARM Climate Research Facility to measure clouds, aerosols, radiation, and the interactions among them. In 2009, the ARM Facility received funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for new and upgraded instrumentation, equipment, and infrastructure to improve and enhance these atmospheric data sets.

Key instruments for the ARM Climate Research Facility include two of the few operational Raman lidars in the world, Doppler and high spectral resolution lidars, an unprecedented set of scanning cloud and precipitation radars, infrared interferometers using electronic coolers rather than cryogens, and a mobile aerosol observation system. As a user facility, field campaigns are funded to acquire a wide variety of data from external and campaign instruments to augment the data generated within the Facility. Data collected from all these instruments are available from their web pages.

*The ARM instrument list contains a mix of naming conventions—individual instruments versus instruments suites. Please see the instrument handbooks for a list of sensors in the instrument suites.

Active instruments are currently deployed at fixed or mobile facilities or are available through the ARM Aerial Facility.
