China Cloud and Aerosol Data Available from DOE ARM Mobile Facility
Published: March 30, 2009
Posted: April 17, 2009

Data collected by the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Mobile Facility (AMF) in Shouxian, China, during the Aerosol Indirect Effects Study in China from May through December 2008 are now in the ARM Data Archive. This experiment was anchored by the AMF in Shouxian and included an additional instrumented site to the east at Lake Taihu and two instrumented sites to the north. Data from the two northern sites are being processed and will be available in the next week. These extensive measurements of clouds, aerosols, radiation, and precipitation will help scientists to examine the role of aerosols in affecting the regional climate and atmospheric circulation across the Pacific Rim. These data are also important for improving and evaluating the global climate models.
