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.
Learn more about ARM at their website. Or view the video below with excerpts from a NPR interview with Principal Investigator Dr. Larry Berg.
