  1. ARM focuses on obtaining continuous measurements—supplemented by field campaigns—and providing data products that promote the advancement of climate models. ARM data include routine data products, value-added products (VAPs), field campaign data, complementary external data products from collaborating programs, and data contributed by ARM principal investigators for use by the scientific community. Data quality reports, graphical displays of data availability/quality, and data plots are also available from the ARM Data Center. Serving users worldwide, the ARM Data Center collects and archives approximately 20 terabytes of data per month. Datastreams are generally available for download within 48 hours.

  1. This dataset contains reprocessed micropulse lidar (MPL) data (equivalent to the ARM cloud mask VAP's lidar fields) which were carefully corrected for each site. These reprocessed data were used in Silber et al. (JGR, 2018). The data extend up to a height of 15 kmmore » and have vertical and temporal resolutions of 15 m and 30 s, respectively. « less
