Ask An ARM Scientist: The ARM Global Warming, Radiation, Weather and Environment Virtual Help Desk
Entry ID: 09-virtual_help-Scientist-00
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program is an important part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) strategy to understand global climate change. The ARM Program has established three outdoor research sites, called Cloud and Radiation Testbeds (CARTs), around the world. Scientists gather and use the data from these sites to study the effects of sunlight, radiant energy, and clouds on temperatures, weather, and climate.

The "Ask an ARM Scientist" portion of the web site is an online virtual help desk offering information related to climate change and atmospheric sciences. An archive of previously answered questions is available and divided by the topic headings atmospheric sciences, climate, gases, radiation, weather, and miscellaneous. Users are encouraged to look for answers on this page or FAQ, http://education.arm.gov/studyhall/past_questions/faq.stm

Description: The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program was created in 1989 with
funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Sponsored by DOE's Office of
Science and managed by the Office of Biological and Environmental Research, ARM
is a multi-laboratory, interagency program, and is a key contributor to
national and international research efforts related to global climate change. A
primary objective of the program is improved scientific understanding of the
fundamental physics related to interactions between clouds and radiative
feedback processes in the atmosphere. ARM focuses on obtaining continuous field
measurements and providing data products that promote the advancement of
climate models.
