Title: ARM Radar Science Recommendations from 2017 6th ARM Radar Workshop

Abstract

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility’s radar organization was formed to provide an integrated approach to meet the scientific objectives of ARM. The radar organization consists of two groups: Radar Science and Radar Engineering and Operations. The two groups work closely for planning, coordination, and communications to produce high-quality observations and products from the ARM radar network, which consists of complex radars deployed in very challenging environments. In addition, scanning cloud radars are relatively new in the community, with very limited products that are mature enough to be applied for modeling studies. The Radar Science Group and Radar Engineering and Operations Group meet regularly along with researchers and users from the community in a workshop. The overarching objective of the workshop is to maximize the usage of ARM radar data for improving our understanding of processes and, ultimately improving representation of clouds and precipitation in models. The 6th DOE ARM Radar Engineering and Radar Science Workshop was held October 24-26, 2017, at Stony Brook University. Approximately 40 participants were present; a detailed list of participants is listed in Section 5. This report documents recommendations made by members of the science community who attendedmore » the workshop. Their recommendations appear italicized in the report. ARM management will consider these recommendations in their future planning and prioritization activities. The topics addressed during the workshop are contained in the agenda (Section 4). Significant action items, recommendations, and comments that came out of the meeting are contained in Section 3. The content in Section 3 presents a path through important discussions that were pursued during the Workshop.« less
