DOE begins climate research at Cape Cod

-A A +A

Science: LANL involved in many facets of the study

The Department of Energy today announced that scientists are beginning an air particles research initiative at Cape Cod National Seashore in Massachusetts designed to improve model simulations of the Earth’s climate system.

Specifically, experiments will use dozens of instruments on the ground and in the air to measure cloud properties and tiny particles in the air, such as dust, soot and sea salt—referred to as aerosols.  Addressing the question of how aerosols interact with clouds and change over time will significantly improve the accuracy of computer models that simulate Earth’s climate system.  

"This research is critically important to better understand the Earth’s climate, including the intricacies of how aerosols and clouds evolve and affect the climate system,” said Dr. Bill Brinkman, Director of the Office of Science. “The experiment at Cape Cod will provide the data needed to increase confidence in the models that predict the future climate.”

The ARM Climate Research Facility is one of the department’s Office of Science user facilities, with heavily instrumented fixed research sites in Oklahoma, Alaska, and the tropical Western Pacific. It also provides two mobile facilities and an aerial facility to support research around the world.
