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.

Testbed Workshop to Improve Climate Models
Jun 02, 2014       
A primary goal of DOE’s Climate and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD) is to expand the predictive ability of regional and global climate models (GCMs). As climate models are developed, testbeds are one set of tools used to understand, evaluate, and identify areas of improvement. A recently completed report summarizes the results of a DOE [...]
