Request for Preproposals
Scientific Research at the ARM Climate Research Facility
U.S. Department of Energy

Preproposal deadline: Friday, 1 February 2013

To submit a proposal, please go to:

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) welcomes preproposals from all
scientists, worldwide, for use of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement
(ARM) Climate Research Facility. Scientists can propose to use any of
the research sites ( and the ARM Mobile
Facilities or ARM Aerial Facility (AAF). In fiscal year 2014 two new ARM
facilities will open, and campaign proposals for these locations are
also welcomed now.

Proposals are being accepted for usage of the second mobile facility
(AMF2) for fall of 2015 for U.S. deployments or early winter in 2016 for
international deployments. The G-1, operated by the AAF, is available

Biological and Environmental Research, which can be reviewed at:
Successful proposals will be supplied all operational and logistical
resources (provided at no cost to the principal investigator).
Successful principal investigators may have an opportunity to obtain a
research grant from the Atmospheric System Research (ASR) program for
the analysis and/or process modeling for three years that supports the
science goals and objectives of the proposal.

Preproposal deadline: Friday, 1 February 2013.
