Through the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program, the Department of Energy (DOE) developed the ARM Climate Research Facility (ACRF)--a network of highly instrumented ground stations, mobile facilities, and an aerial vehicles program for studying global climate change research. As a national scientific user facility, ACRF is available for use by scientists worldwide and has enormous potential to contribute to a wide range of interdisciplinary science topics including climate change, meteorology, atmospheric aerosols, hydrology, biogeochemical cycling, and satellite validation.

ACRF users regularly conduct field campaigns to augment routine data collections and to test and validate new instrumentation. The mobile facility--a portable atmospheric laboratory--explores science questions for ACRF users in under-sampled climatically important regions of the world. Recent deployments include Niamey, Niger; Heselbach, Germany; and Shouxian, China; the Azores will be next. Visit Booth 517 for information about ACRF sites, field campaigns, instruments, data, website, and ARM research results.

The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) sponsors the Global Change Education Program (GCEP) to promote undergraduate and graduate education and training in support of the Department's global change research activities. Global change research encompasses a number of technical areas, including atmospheric sciences, ecology, global carbon cycles, climate, and terrestrial processes. Global change research is supported by BER through the Atmospheric Science Program (ASP), the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program, the Terrestrial Carbon Processes (TCP) effort, the Program for Ecosystem Research (PER), and studies carried out under the direction of the National Institute for Climate Change Research (NICCR). Other studies address climate modeling, integrated assessments, predictions, and policy, as well as earth system processes. GCEP has two components: namely the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) and the Graduate Research Environmental Fellowships (GREF). SURE's primary goal is to involve undergraduate students at the end of their sophomore or junior year in BER-supported global change research, then continue this experience during subsequent undergraduate summers. To further improve the quality of emerging scientists in disciplines related to global change research, SURE students are encouraged to apply for GREF graduate fellowships and to pursue graduate education opportunities. GREF's primary goal is to support research designed and conducted collaboratively between graduate students/faculty advisors and DOE researchers at national laboratories or universities. GREF research must be aligned with the technical areas cited above. GREF graduates are encouraged to continue climate change careers in postdoctoral and permanent positions in academia, government laboratories, and industry. Who's Who and What's What in GCEP Mr. Rickey C. Petty is the DOE BER Funding Officer; Dr. Jeffrey S. Gaffney (University of Arkansas at Little Rock) is the Chief Scientist; Dr. Nancy Marley (University of Arkansas at Little Rock) is the Assistant Chief Scientist; and Dr. Milton J. Constantin (Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education) is the Program Manager.

Hach Environmental offers advanced technology sensors for high accuracy unattended meteorological monitoring. Our precipitation and present weather sensors (distrometer) can compliment your network of surface weather and water level monitoring stations. Our technology, combined with expert technical support and service, delivers results you can depend on.

Recognized worldwide for its precision and performance, the OTT Pluvio² is an all-weather precipitation gauge that uses superior weight-based technology to measure rainfall, snow or hail. The OTT Pluvio² provides real-time intensity, multiple communication interfaces, and two collection capacity and collection area options.

The OTT Parsivel is a modern, laser-based optical system for measuring size and velocity of all types of precipitation. The transmitter unit of the sensor generates a flat, horizontal beam of light, which the receiver converts into an electrical signal. The signal changes whenever a hydrometeor falls through the beam anywhere within the measurement area.

The International Environmental Data Rescue Organization (IEDRO) is an IRS certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing historic environmental data (i.e. old weather observations) throughout the world. We provide for their digitization and free distribution through NOAA's National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, NC (per WMO Resolution 40) so that the world community can benefit. To date, over 1,000,000 observations have been rescued in the following countries Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Niger, Senegal, Tanzania, Zambia in Africa and the Dominican Republic, Chile and Uruguay in this hemisphere! These mainly paper-based data are disappearing at the rate of over 100,000 parameter values each day due to fire, vermin, flood, age and lack of storage space. Once these critical data are lost, they are lost forever. We depend 100% on volunteers and private donations in addition to occasional government funding to carry on our work. Please consider donating your time or your money to this environmentally worthwhile effort.

Aanderaa Data Instruments AS (AADI) will exhibit its Real-Time Observation products, Data Buoy 4700, SEAGUARD ® RCM & RDCP 600 Doppler Profiler with their Smart Sensors and supporting data acquisition software products. These systems are specifically designed for real-time climate observations.

AADI with 40 years of service to science, research, and industry believes that these products represent a technology breakthrough in commercially available Distributed Remote Underwater Observation Systems. Our Seaguard Host with its expanding line of Smart Sensors marks a turning point in instrumentation for underwater and atmospheric measurement. Individual sensors become nodes that simply plug in to observing arrays and/or self-contained instrument payloads.

Known for reliable-robust-quality oceanographic instrumentation AADI is a trusted source of Institutes, Universities, Surveyors, Navies, Oil & Gas, Drilling, Mining, Port Authorities, Environmental Agencies, Water - Water Treatment, and Electric Utilities internationally.

YES continues its leadership in advanced solar radiation, column aerosols, cloud, temperature, and climate change instrumentation. A new true thermopile broadband channel in our shadowband radiometers offers a high accuracy, cost-effective alternative to maintaining solar trackers. As a companion to the TPS-3100 Hotplate™ precipitation sensor, Snow-Tell display software provides local snow removal and public safety officials realtime decision support. Snow-Tell displays a statewide map of snowfall that can be linked to roadway deicing treatments, optimizing the application of melting agents. Finally, this year, the XDR-928 dropsonde was successfully tested from the NASA DC-8 aircraft as part of the Arctic Mechanisms of Interaction between the Sea and Atmosphere (AMISA 2008) experiment. These in situ sensors are ideal for hurricane or climate research.
