Storm Peak Lab Cloud Property Validation Experiment (STORMVEx)

The U.S. Department of Energy announced the initial deployment of the second ARM Mobile Facility (AMF2) to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, in 2010 for the Storm Peak Lab Cloud Property Validation Experiment (StormVEx).

The already extensive instrument suite at SPL will be augmented with additional state of the art instruments that are typically used for airborne cloud research by the Stratton Park Engineering Corporation (SPEC). SPL and SPEC will collect in situ cloud and precipitation property measurements while the AMF2 operates at a location approximately 2.4 km west and 500 m in elevation during a winter season.
