The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility and Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) are seeking collaborative research applications through the Facilities Integrating Collaborations for User Science (FICUS) program. The FICUS program was established in 2014 to encourage and enable ambitious research projects, integrating the expertise and capabilities of multiple user facilities.
Researchers from around the world can apply through this call to use ARM and EMSL resources and collaborate with their scientific staff at no cost. Successful applications will address projects that can be completed in a 24‑month timeline, use a range of the available capabilities, and generate datasets beyond what users of each facility could generate through separate projects.
Focus Topic Areas: Land-Atmosphere Processes and Aerosol-Cloud Interactions
Proposed research should investigate aerosol processes, aerosol-cloud interactions, or land-atmosphere processes toward improved Earth system models.
