Scientists from around the world conduct research using data from ARM’s continuous measurements and field campaigns. ARM’s contributions to atmospheric science can be seen in science publications and research highlights.
Field campaigns provide a means for scientists to augment or modify the configuration of the ARM facility to address specific science issues. Campaigns range in complexity from deploying a single instrument to deploying an ARM Mobile Facility to remote locations around the world. As a scientific user facility, any scientist can submit a proposal to do field campaigns at ARM’s atmospheric observatories.
Data from ARM’s continuous measurements and field campaigns at sites around the world are a vital asset to atmospheric researchers. Research results are published in scientific journal articles, conference publications, and presentations.
Publications in scientific journals represent tangible evidence of ARM’s contribution to advances in almost all areas of atmospheric radiation and cloud research. ARM’s Research Highlights summarize recently published research results.

Research area: Cloud Processes
Drizzle from shallow clouds over global oceans can lead to profound changes in atmospheric particle concentrations, cloud cover, and sunlight reaching the ocean surface, but how the process gets started remains surprisingly poorly understood. Shown here is a first use of vertically-pointing radar measurements over the Azores to evaluate and [...]

Research area: Cloud-Aerosol-Precipitation Interactions
Here we elucidate the key processes that drive marine boundary-layer (MBL) aerosol size distribution in the Eastern North Atlantic (ENA) using long-term measurements. The governing equations of particle concentration are established for different modes.
