amf_cops_info_1: links to AMF (ARM Mobile Facility) data taken during the COPS Campaign

Additional Info
In March 2007, the third deployment of the ARM Mobile Facility (AMF) took place in the Black Forest region of Germany, where scientists studied rainfall resulting from atmospheric uplift (convection) in mountainous terrain, otherwise known as orographic precipitation. ARM Program scientists collaborated with researchers from the University of Hohenheim as part of the long-term Convective and Orographically Induced Precipitation Study (COPS). The AMF has been deployed in the village of Heselbach in the Murg Valley.

The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program was created in 1989 with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Sponsored by DOE's Office of Science and managed by the Office of Biological and Environmental Research, ARM is a multi-laboratory, interagency program, and is a key contributor to national and international research efforts related to global climate change. A primary objective of the program is improved scientific understanding of the fundamental physics related to interactions between clouds and radiative feedback processes in the atmosphere. ARM focuses on obtaining continuous field measurements and providing data products that promote the advancement of climate models.
