Facility Highlights at American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting

Published: 24 January 2017

A record breaking 4,300 scientists, educators, students, and other professionals have gathered in Seattle, Washington, to collaborate and share how “Observations Lead the Way,” at the 2017 American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting, January 22 to 26. The AMS Annual Meeting is the world’s largest yearly gathering for the weather, water, and climate community.

Find out how researchers are using data from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility—the world’s most comprehensive outdoor laboratory and data archive for research related to atmospheric processes that affect Earth’s climate—to improve earth system models.

See the complete presentation page for nearly 100 oral and poster sessions featuring ARM data, including invited talks. To learn more about ASR-related research at AMS, see the Atmospheric System Research (ASR) web page. The AMS conference program is also available.

A few highlights include:
