Before submitting a field campaign pre-proposal to the ARM Climate Research Facility, read the ARM Field Campaign Guidelines for an overview of processes and requirements. Guidelines for smaller campaigns (e.g., deployment of a guest instrument at an ARM site) and the Annual Facility Call are also available.
ARM reviews proposals on a quarterly, semi-annual, and annual basis as determined by the individual proposal classification. When submitting a pre-proposal, ensure that the proposed start date of the campaign leaves adequate time for the review and approval process. See the proposal review schedule for when campaigns will be approved.
Note: If preparing pre-proposals in Microsoft® Word® or other document preparation software, please copy and paste it into a plain text editor, such as Notepad, before copying it into the pre-proposal. This helps eliminate hidden code from being carried over. If including scientific characters or any other special characters, please use the ISO 8859-1 standard for HTML conversion or spell it out. For assistance with characters conversion, contact the administrators.
