We have some great news to report in this edition of ASR News! Please save the date for the 2023 Joint ARM User Facility/Atmospheric System Research (ASR) Principal Investigators Meeting. It will be from August 7 to 10 in Rockville, Maryland. Read more about the meeting.
I attended my first in-person Joint Meeting last year, and it was a great way to get to know you—our scientific community—and your research better. So I’m very excited about this year’s meeting and hope to see as many of you there as possible.
This edition of our newsletter also highlights preparations to bring a new ARM atmospheric observatory to the Bankhead National Forest in northern Alabama. The science team is jointly funded by ASR and ARM. When operations begin later this year, the data collected will help us improve process understanding and model representation of aerosol, cloud, and land-atmosphere interactions.
As emphasized in last month’s “From the Program Manager” column, this is the time to think about progress reports and no-cost extensions. If your project is nearing its conclusion, plan for final reports now. The Resources for ASR Scientists section of our website offers detailed information on project reporting.
Finally, my co-program manager, Shaima Nasiri, and I always want to hear from you. If you have an idea for a news story or a feature profile, please let us know!# # #
