Atmospheric Observatory Management


Three heavily instrumented fixed-location atmospheric observatories that represent a broad range of conditions are operated by the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility to gather massive amounts of atmospheric data. In addition to the fixed-location observatories, ARM also offers both mobile and aerial facilities. Contacts for observatory management and site operations appear below. Detailed information for each site can be found on the Capabilities: Observatories Page.
