User Facility

EVS manages operations for the Southern Great Plains Site in Oklahoma which is a component of the Atmospheric Radiation Management (ARM) Climate Research Facility.

The ARM Research Facility, a Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science user facility, provides data from strategically located climate observatories around the world. The facilities, including the Southern Great Plains Site, are designed to improve the understanding and representation of clouds and aerosols and their interactions with Earth's surface in climate and Earth system models.

The DOE Office of Science established its national scientific user facilities to provide researchers with the most advanced tools of modern science for studying the nanoworld, the environment, and the atmosphere.
