New call open: ARM will consider proposals to fly guest instruments on its tethered balloon systems during the TRacking Aerosol Convection interactions ExpeRiment (TRACER). The flights will take place during the TRACER intensive operational period scheduled from June to September 2021 in the Houston, Texas, area. Submit by September 1, 2020.
ARM provides the scientific community with the operational and logistical resources to conduct field campaigns using the ARM observatories that focus on advancing research in support of the ARM mission.
Priority will be given to proposals that make comprehensive use of ARM facilities, focus on strategic goals of the DOE Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program, and have the ability to improve regional or global earth system models.
Proposals that coordinate with other BER community capabilities (e.g., Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, AmeriFlux Network, Next Generation Ecosystem Experiments in the Arctic and Tropics, Energy Exascale Earth System Model) or that support the goals of the Global Energy and Water cycle Exchanges (GEWEX) project are encouraged.
