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.

Megasites Accept Mega Challenge: New Directions Take Formation in First Workshop
Nov 04, 2014       
With the growing interest in high-resolution model simulations, the Department of Energy Climate Environmental Sciences Division is hosting a series of workshops to focus on key scientific needs, gaps, and priorities in process model understanding and climate model prediction through the strategic deployment and operation of routine high-resolution modeling at the future "megasites" at the North Slope of Alaska (NSA) and Southern Great Plains (SGP) for the ARM Climate Research Facility.
