ARM Exhibit Draws Diverse Crowd at American Geophysical Union Meeting

Published: 15 December 2007

Jennifer Delamere talks about her research experiences using the ARM Climate Research Facility with an interested researcher at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union.

With an updated display and new informational materials, ARM joined more than 160 exhibitors at the annual fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco. About 15,000 researchers, teachers, students, and consultants from all over the world attended the weeklong event, held December 10-14, to discuss and learn about the latest issues in all areas of Earth and space sciences. This is the fourth year that ARM has sponsored an exhibit during the meeting.

Visitors from as far away as Tibet, Korea, and Tasmania visited the ARM booth. Most visitors were interested in learning about the scope of the user facility, the kind of measurements obtained by the instruments, recent field campaigns, and how to access data from the ARM Archive. When not presenting their research, ARM scientists spent time at the booth throughout the meeting to assist in answering questions. In the poster sessions and oral presentations, research results based on data from ARM covered science in areas such as cloud and radiation interactions, aerosol properties and effects, land surface flux, modeling, and research capabilities. Data from ARM field campaigns in Alaska, Australia, Oklahoma, and Africa were also featured in several posters and presentations.
