The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program DLESE Reviewed Collection
The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program is an important part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) strategy to understand global climate change. The ARM Program has established three outdoor research sites around the world. Scientists gather and use the data from these sites to study the effects of sunlight, radiant energy, and clouds on temperatures, weather, and climate. This site has information about ARM and global warming. It has lesson plans, a question area, and an Ask a Scientist link.
