AGU and AMS Highlights

Published: 20 February 2017
Jim Mather, ARM Technical Director, and Sally McFarlane, U.S. Department of Energy ARM Program Manager, spent time in the ARM Facility exhibit at the annual meeting of the American Meteorological Society in Seattle, in January 2017.

If you weren’t able to attend the 2016 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting last December or the Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) in January, you can still discover the research results that were presented featuring ARM Climate Research Facility data.

From December 12 to 16, 2016, nearly 24,000 scientists from 113 countries gathered in San Francisco to present at AGU. The scientific impact of ARM, a U.S. Department of Energy’s user facility, can be found in summaries of over 100 workshops, presentations, posters, and more.

January 10, was the beginning of AMS sessions, which provided 4,400 attendees the opportunity to share their work, network with colleagues, and learn of recent research developments. A number of ARM users led sessions and shared their work in atmospheric science using ARM data.
