Constituents Groups

 

The ARM Climate Research Facility is guided by several constituent groups that help steer the overall direction of ARM by providing input on how to best meet the Facility’s—and the atmospheric research community’s—science goals.

User Executive Committee

The ARM User Executive Committee (UEC) provides objective, timely feedback to the leadership of the ARM Facility with respect to the user experience.

UEC Chair
Larry Berg

Implementation Strategy Team

The Implementation Strategy Team is responsible for integration and implementation of engineering and development activities and projects that support our operational baseline and providing a vision for future development directions.

Implementation Strategy Team Lead
Jennifer Comstock

Aerosol Measurement Science Group

The Aerosol Measurement Science Group (AMSG) coordinates ARM Facility observations of aerosols and atmospheric trace gases with user needs.

AMSG Co-Chairs 
Allison McComiskey and Doug Sisterson

Unmanned Aircraft Systems Advisory Panel

The Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Advisory Panel provides scientific and technical advice to ARM leadership as the Facility plans tethered balloon and UAS operations.

UAS Advisory Panel Lead
Beat Schmid

Atmospheric Modeling Advisory Group

The Atmospheric Modeling Advisory Group provides feedback on ARM modeling activities.

Atmospheric Modeling Group Manager
Bill Gustafson

Engineering Review Board

The ARM Climate Research Facility engineering process is a series of formal tasks to initiate, revise, and guide ARM engineering tasks.

Engineering Review Board Lead
Jim Mather

Radar Science and Operations Groups

The Radar Science and Operations Groups provide enhanced coordination with the Atmospheric System Research (ASR) science team to ensure ARM radar instruments and data products are producing the information necessary for improving climate model physics.
