The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility will host an open science-focused summer school from May 19 to 24, 2024, at Cleveland State University in Ohio.
The ARM Open Science Summer School: Connecting State-of-the-Art Models with Diverse Field Campaign Observations is targeted at students from undergraduates to postdoctoral scholars. Planned activities include instructional talks, tutorials, and mentored hackathon sessions for attendees to work with ARM data and open-source software.
The overarching mission of the summer school is to enhance the scientific impact of ARM observations through the instruction of students in new techniques to gain insight into atmospheric processes using open science tools.
Objectives of the summer school are to:
- increase knowledge about the range of ARM observations, demonstrate innovative and methodologically sound use of those observations, and connect students to a variety of knowledgeable resources (e.g., ARM instrument mentors)
- introduce students to resources within ARM for high performance data-proximate computation
- equip students with a variety of techniques for comparing high-resolution model output with ARM observations to study a range of atmospheric processes.
The summer school is free to accepted applicants. The application questions and rubric used to select students will reflect the overall mission of the summer school. Students can elect to request financial aid for flights, lodging, and meals based on need. Attendance will be limited to 30 students.
- The application period closes March 15.
- Students will be informed of acceptance and financial aid decisions by March 29.
ARM is a DOE Office of Science user facility operated by nine DOE national laboratories.
