Title: 2017 Annual Report

Abstract

2017 was a milestone year for the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility. It marked the 25th anniversary of ARM collecting data at its first site in the Great Plains, 20 years of collecting data in the Arctic, and 10 years of collecting data with the ARM Aerial Facility. ARM successfully underwent its Triennial Review by a panel selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and completed the development and testing of the Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) ARM Symbiotic Simulation and Observation (LASSO) project’s pilot phase, which adds modeling to ARM’s suite of capabilities. All of this exemplifies how ARM continues to support high-impact science—as it has throughout its history. Since a Decadal Vision was set forth in 2014, ARM has focused on helping ensure that the next generation of researchers would have the measurements they need of cloud and aerosol properties and their impacts on Earth’s energy balance to continue to improve the scientific understanding of the atmosphere and the predictive capabilities of earth system models. Fiscal year 2017 was a year of seeing results from the Decadal Vision plan to combine observational and modeling elements.
