ARM’s continuous measurements and field campaigns are helping advance climate science.

Scientists from around the world conduct research using data from ARM’s continuous measurements and field campaigns. ARM’s contributions to atmospheric science can be seen in science publications and research highlights.

Field Campaigns

Field campaigns provide a means for scientists to augment or modify the configuration of the ARM facility to address specific science issues. Campaigns range in complexity from deploying a single instrument to deploying an ARM Mobile Facility to remote locations around the world. As a scientific user facility, any scientist can submit a proposal to do field campaigns at ARM’s atmospheric observatories.


Data from ARM’s continuous measurements and field campaigns at sites around the world are a vital asset to atmospheric researchers. Research results are published in scientific journal articles, conference publications, and presentations.

Research Highlights

Publications in scientific journals represent tangible evidence of ARM’s contribution to advances in almost all areas of atmospheric radiation and cloud research. ARM’s Research Highlights summarize recently published research results.

Supersaturation, the excess of water vapor pressure over its saturated value, is a key parameter driving growth of cloud particles in deep convective updrafts. Supersaturation cannot be directly observed and its impact on cloud dynamics remains unclear. For numerical efficiency, cloud models often assume that the supersaturation inside convective updrafts [...]
