Open Science in the Rockies: Working With ARM Data from the Surface Atmosphere Integrated Field Laboratory

Sponsored By

Open Science in the Rockies: Working With ARM Measurements from the Surface Atmosphere Integrated Field Laboratory. The water resources of the western United States are changing rapidly, and how the atmosphere respond. The ARM Mobile Facility (AMF) is nearing the end of a nearly two year deployment to Crested Butte, Colorado. The Surface Atmosphere Integrated Field Laboratory (SAIL) deployment involved a myriad of measurements documenting the earth system processes, extending from stratosphere through the bedrock, which control water resources in the West. This short course, aimed at a broad audience, will:

  • Introduce students to the unique capabilities of the ARM program and the community of atmospheric scientists that use and produce ARM data.
  • Educate attendees on ARM’s measurement suite.
  • Highlight the underlying science behind SAIL and the East River watershed.
  • Show how to find and access ARM measurements.
  • Using a number of open source tools, train attendees how to analyze ARM’s open data in the Python programming language.
