Investigators who use Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility data are major contributors to atmospheric research aimed toward improvements to regional and global climate models, publishing about 150 journal articles each year. Members of the ARM Facility prepare other documents to help guide the direction of the Facility and track progress. These publications include planning documents, status reports, and conference presentations.

ARM also develops public information materials to communicate the purpose and objectives of the program to general audiences, as well as educational outreach materials for classrooms and communities.

Oct 02, 2015       
The ARM Climate Research Facility is entering an exciting new era where the application of ARM observations and data processing will be accelerated by routine, high-resolution modeling to enable better understanding of cloud, radiation, aerosol, and land-surface processes and use that knowledge to improve climate models. Results from the Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) ARM Symbiotic Simulation and [...]
