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.
Characterization of Black Carbon Mixing State
This measurement characterizes the types of BC emissions that result in nearsurface BC containing particles in a region that is dominated by biomass and open pit/stove cooking. Specifically, examine three primary BC emission sources: (i) urban setting (e.g., fossil fuel emissions); and (ii) biomass burning. Source (i) are captured at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore. Biomass emissions (ii) contains a series of 12 day measurement excursions to the rural area surrounding Bangalore.

The authors provide the first estimates, by year, of global man-made emissions of methane, from 1860 through 1994. The methods, including the rationale for the various coefficients and assumptions used in deriving the estimates, are described fully in Stern and Kaufmann (1995, 1996), which providesmore »
Measurement of Air Pollution from Satellites (MAPS) 1994 Correlative Atmospheric Carbon Monoxide Mixing Ratios (DB-1020)This database offers select carbon monoxide (CO) mixing ratios from eleven field and aircraft measurement programs around the world. Carbon monoxide mixing ratios in the middle troposphere have been examined for short periods of time by using the Measurement of Air Pollution from Satellites (MAPS)more »
Soil Mesocosm CO2 Emissions after 13C-glucose Addition, Soil Physical and Chemical Characteristics, and Microbial Biomass, Barrow, Alaska, 2014-2016Measurements made from a 2014-2016 field glucose addition experiment. Dataset includes measurements of surface trace gas emissions (Delta13C of ecosystem respiration and source-partitioned surface CO2 flux, CH4 flux, and GPP), soil profile information (concentrations of carbon, nitrogen, and soil microbial biomass carbon, Delta13C of soilmore »
Geographical Distribution of Woody Biomass Carbon in Tropical Africa: An Updated Database for 2000 (NDP-055.2007, NDP-055b))Maps of biomass density are critical inputs for estimating carbon emissions from deforestation and degradation of tropical forests. Brown and Gatson (1996) pioneered methods to use GIS analysis to map forest biomass based on forest inventory data (ndp055). This database is an update of ndp055more »
Data were collected to characterize the emissions of biomass burns and the evolution of aerosols down wind of these events. Data includes preflight, flight and some post flight data of processed data. All calibrations and zeros have been removed. Best available calibration factors have beenmore »
