Timing is everything, and happily, we were able to announce the 2023 ASR Funding Opportunity Announcement during the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility/Atmospheric System Research (ASR) Principal Investigators (PI) Meeting.
This FOA focuses on:
- Cloud, aerosol, precipitation, and thermodynamic processes from the TRacking Aerosol Convection interactions ExpeRiment (TRACER)
- Cloud, aerosol, precipitation, and radiation processes from the Surface Atmosphere Integrated Field Laboratory (SAIL)
- Warm boundary-layer atmospheric processes
- Southeastern U.S. atmospheric processes through the early use of observations from the third ARM Mobile Facility (AMF3)
We are excited by the scientific scope of this FOA, and are eager to see your pre-applications, which are due December 8, 2022. Read more about this FOA here, and please contact us with any questions.
It has truly been a busy fall. The TRACER campaign in Houston concluded on September 30 and the Surface Atmosphere Integrated Field Laboratory (SAIL) campaign in Colorado marked one year in the field. Both will drive research for years to come!
And speaking of the Joint ARM/ASR Meeting, thank you to everyone who participated! Whether you were an in-person or virtual attendee, the sessions were fascinating. Moreover, it was exciting to hear about your research first-hand. It was great to see everyone talking, sharing ideas, and building (and re-building) relationships. And from a personal standpoint, it was the first time I’ve met many of you in person!
Just a reminder, presentations and posters are still available from last week’s Joint Meeting. Check out the agenda and presentations page. If you organized a breakout session, please be sure to send in your breakout session report and upload your presentations.
Looking ahead, the 2022 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in Chicago is just a month away. Please be sure to share your presentation information with the ARM and ASR community, and we will promote your presentations on the ASR and ARM websites.
I look forward to seeing you in Chicago!# # #
