The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility is guided by several constituent groups that help steer the overall direction of ARM by providing input on how to best meet ARM’s—and the atmospheric research community’s—science goals.
User Executive Committee
The User Executive Committee (UEC) provides advice and recommendations regarding the ARM user experience and serves as the official voice of the user community and advocate for atmospheric research.
Aerosol Measurement Science Group
The Aerosol Measurement Science Group (AMSG) provides expertise on measurements and processes to best meet the aerosol science objectives of ARM, the ASR program, and the broader atmospheric research community.
Atmospheric Modeling Advisory Group
The Atmospheric Modeling Advisory Panel represents research community interests and provides feedback to the LES ARM Symbiotic Simulation and Observation Workflow (LASSO) modeling project.
Cloud and Precipitation Measurements and Science Group
The ARM Cloud and Precipitation Measurements and Science Group (CPMSG) brings together members of the ARM instrument operations, engineering, and translator teams with the ARM science community to improve the performance and science impact of ARM’s measurements of clouds and precipitation.
Unmanned Aerial Systems Advisory Group
The Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Advisory Goup provides scientific and technical advice to ARM regarding tethered balloon and UAS operations.
ARM Science Board
The ARM Science Board reviews field research campaign proposals for using ARM. Made up of scientists from the ASR program and the broader community, the science board ensures that ARM is used to its fullest potential in pursuit of its science goals.
