The ARM facility strives to provide the optimum set of measurements, data products, and data services to meet the needs of the science community. Science meetings and workshops provide excellent opportunities to hear from users of the ARM facility; however, users have expressed a need to be able to provide input outside of these venues. Through this page you can make ARM aware of measurements, data products, or services that would help advance your science area. When sharing your idea, please note the following steps in the ARM development process:
- We outline our annual development and procurement plans in the months leading up to the start of each fiscal year, which begins on October 1. So, for consideration in a particular fiscal year, input should be received no later than May (and earlier is better).
- We will review your requests on a quarterly basis. Requests will be evaluated on their potential impact and feasibility. We may combine your input with input from other sources. We may also solicit additional input from you or the broader community.
- Our ability to add new capabilities varies significantly from year to year depending on the budget allocation and standing commitments.
- We will report on priorities and significant development projects that we undertake on the future directions page.
To help us assess your idea, please complete the following form. Please note that it is important that requests benefit a community versus a single individual or group.
