The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program was established to
address uncertainties in climate research. Computer modeling has shown
that one of the most important uncertainties is clouds and how they impact
on energy balance in the atmosphere. This pamphlet explains the program
and the part it plays in understanding global climate change.
