Excerpt
Executive Summary: The mission of the Department of Energy's Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program is to utilize a suite of instrumental methods at selected fixed positions on the earth to collect a well-defined time series of atmospheric radiative transport data. Such data are needed to reduce the uncertainties in determining the factors that control the atmospheric relative humidity and cloud properties, which together account for a large portion of the variability in predictions of climate models to changes in atmospheric radiative properties including changes in greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. The ARM program is a $40 million/year effort within the Context: of the larger $1.7 billionlyear U.S. Global Change Research Program.
