Cloud, Aerosol, and Complex Terrain Interactions (CACTI) 1 October 2018 to 30 April 2019
The annual facility call for campaign proposals is open December 1, 2018, to April 5, 2019. An early online release of the DOE-sponsored ARM Mobile Facility Workshop Report is available now for those interested.
Note: ARM will consider proposals to fly guest instruments on tethered balloon systems at Oliktok Point, Alaska, or the Southern Great Plains (SGP) atmospheric observatory. Flights will take place in late summer (August) at Oliktok, or summer or fall at the SGP. Submit by March 15 to be considered.
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 Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER), and have the ability to improve regional or global earth system models.
Proposals that coordinate with other BER community capabilities, such as the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, AmeriFlux Network, Next Generation Ecosystem Experiments in the Arctic and Tropics, and Energy Exascale Earth System Model, are encouraged.
