Arrival of Recovery Act Funds Sets Wheels In Motion
Since the allocation of stimulus funds announced by DOE in March, ARM has worked to develop a detailed project plan encompassing all the tasks and milestones necessary to manage this enormous capital expenditure. Using input from the climate change research community—specifically past ARM workshops and working group discussions—ARM has planned for the purchase and deployment of an expansive array of new instruments and equipment. The past few months of planning now kick into high gear with implementation and procurement activities.
When completed, this effort will dramatically improve the capabilities of the facility and provide a 3D capability at all ARM sites for the benefit of the international climate change science community. Stay tuned for more information about the enhancements planned throughout the user facility or see the Recovery Act FAQ page.
