Title: 2018 Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Annual Report

Abstract

In fiscal year 2018 (FY2018), the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility carried out important measurement missions around the globe and worked to better couple ARM measurements with the needs of the science community through the evaluation of priorities and the continued development of new capabilities, including efforts to better link data and models. While many of these efforts have been ongoing, their importance was supported by recommendations from the 2017 ARM Triennial Review. In February 2018, we submitted the final plans to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) that ARM will commit to accomplish over the next two years to address the Triennial Review recommendations. We then began implementing activities to: improve and track communications effectiveness at conferences and through the User Executive Committee implement additional metrics to track ARM’s scientific impact, including on model improvement engage users beyond the traditional DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER)/Atmospheric System Research (ASR) communities increase the timely production and delivery of ARM Mobile Facility value-added products (VAPs) and create a mechanism to better set expectations for VAP delivery to users improve Data Discovery, ARM’s portal for accessing more than 25 years’ worth of data, for users define a clear processmore » for biennially reviewing instrumentation, data products, and other activities with the goal of determining where resources should be applied update the radar plan and create a plan for optimizing aerosol data collection implement operational plans for the Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) ARM Symbiotic Simulation and Observation (LASSO) project and establish a plan for selecting the next science target for LASSO. We have made great progress in all of these areas, much of which is shared in this report, including plans for setting priorities for aerosol measurements and data product development. In FY2018, ARM also brought many plans to fruition that were outlined in its 2014 Decadal Vision strategy, such as the implementation of the LASSO project that integrates observations and models and the continued advancement in the use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS).« less
