The ARM Mobile Facility (AMF) is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) ARM Climate Research Facility (ACRF), a national user facility for the purpose of providing this unique asset for the study of global change to the broader national and international research community ( ESRL is funded by ACRF to serve as Instrument Mentor for the AMF Aerosol Observing Sytem.

The ARM Mobile Facility is funded and operated by the Department of Energy/Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (DOE/ARM) program. NOAA/ESRL/GMD serves as a mentor for the ARM aerosol observing systems (AOS).

The ARM Mobile Facility (AMF) offers the opportunity to deploy an aerosol observing system in multiple locations with a variety of aerosol conditions.

  • The first deployment (April-September, 2005) was during the MArine Stratus Radiation Aerosol and Drizzle (MASRAD) campaign.
