2022 ARM/ASR Joint Meeting


2022 ARM-ASR Joint MeetingThe 2022 Joint Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility/Atmospheric System Research (ASR) Principal Investigators (PI) Meeting will be held in-person (in Rockville, MD) and virtually.

The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility provides the climate research community with strategically located in situ and remote sensing observatories designed to improve the understanding and representation, in climate and earth system models, of clouds and aerosols as well as their interactions and coupling with the Earth’s surface. The Atmospheric System Research (ASR) program supports an improved understanding of key cloud, aerosol, precipitation, and radiation processes that affect the Earth’s radiative balance and hydrological cycle, especially processes that limit the predictive ability of regional and global models. ASR has four priority research areas that correspond to atmospheric regimes with large uncertainties in Earth system prediction: aerosol processes, warm boundary-layer processes, convective processes, and high-latitude processes. The ASR principal investigators (PIs) are an important user group for the ARM facility, contributing 75% of scientific publications resulting from ARM data.

The 2022 joint user facility/PI meeting will provide a venue for ASR PIs and ARM scientific facility users to report on progress from their research and provide input on scientific priorities, needs, and gaps to the ARM facility.

The 2022 meeting will include plenary sessions, breakout sessions, and poster sessions for ASR scientists and ARM facility users to present their research results and for the ARM facility to present updates on ARM capabilities. Additionally, the meeting will provide opportunities for informal networking and for ARM users to interact with ARM facility staff and learn more about ARM capabilities.

The meeting will be a hybrid in-person and virtual meeting. Plenary and breakout sessions will allow participation by both in-person and virtual attendees. The meeting will have both in-person and virtual poster sessions. In-person poster presenters are encouraged to also submit an electronic version of their poster before the meeting so that virtual attendees may view it during the meeting.

The DOE Office of Science (SC) is fully committed to fostering safe, diverse, equitable, and inclusive work, research, and funding environments that value mutual respect and personal integrity. Effective stewardship and promotion of diverse and inclusive workplaces that value and celebrate a diversity of people, ideas, cultures, and educational backgrounds is foundational to delivering on the SC mission. The scientific community engaged in SC-sponsored activities is expected to be respectful, ethical, and professional.
