e pitched in on the creation of engaging murals to showcase climate research and heard from personnel involved with the Department of Energy's Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Mobile Climate Research Facility, who have been gathering data during a one-year deployment at the Highlands Center to advance long-term climate models. We watched a weather balloon launches, learned, listened to live music, enjoyed light refreshments and supported our Climate Friendly Park through public art!
DOE ARM Climate Research Facility (July 2012 - July 2013)
The Department of Energy's Atmospheric Radiation Monitoring System Mobile Climate Research Facility has been engaged in a one-year deployment at Highlands Center. The goal was to study aerosols - tiny particles in the air such as dust, soot and sea salt - to improve understanding of how aerosols effect Earth's climate.
