Abstract
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) initiated the ARM Program in 1990 to provide an experimental testbed for the study of cloud and radiative processes with the ultimate goal of improving the performance of general circulation models for global and regional prediction of climate change. The concept of the program is to acquire high-quality, long-term data at sites representing important climatological regimes, to conduct long-term and campaign experiments and to establish strong coordination among the U.S. National Laboratories, the non-DOE scientific community, and national and international research programs. During the past three years, several key experiment locales have been identified, a science team has been selected, a few short term experiments have been conducted, and the first permanent surface site has been established in Lamont, Oklahoma, U.S.A.
