Investigators who use ARM Climate Research Facility data are major contributors to atmospheric research aimed toward improvements to regional and global climate models, on average publishing 150 journal articles each year. Members of the ARM Facility prepare other documents to help guide the direction of the ARM Facility and track progress. These publications include:

  • planning documents
  • status reports
  • conference presentations.

ARM also develops public information materials—such as brochures, program fact sheets, and campaign backgrounders—to communicate the purpose and objectives of the Facility to general audiences.
