Title: ARM Aerosol Measurement Plan

Abstract

Over the past decade, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility has been working toward developing a comprehensive (defined here as Tiers I-III in Appendix A) and consistent set of aerosol measurements across each of the ARM ground-based observatories. Along the way, the facility has deployed wide-ranging instruments including some for which ARM has had many years of operating experience and some which represent more cutting-edge capabilities. While there has been a clear motivation for this instrument suite, the adoption of these instruments has not been uniform. The reasons for this vary and include operational challenges, measurement complexity, and alignment with active research.
