The lab focuses on a wide range of theoretical, experimental, and field studies in support of the US.
Energy and Climate Research Programs of the Department of Energy. Most of the work is supported by
the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility (www.arm.gov), a
program that measures aerosols, clouds, precipitation, radiation and atmospheric dynamics; the
Atmospheric Systems Research Program; and the Terrestrial Ecosystem Sciences Program. this job is
pursued with the ultimate goal of improving predictability and reducing uncertainty in
regional climate models. The department’s research portfolio also includes the development of
renewable energy technologies and applications, urban science and national security.
The Cloud Process Group (https://www.bnl.gov/envsci/cloud/) within Environmental & Climate
The Science Department is widely recognized for its state-of-the-art observation and modeling studies of
the microphysical and dynamic processes that impact the life cycle of clouds, with the aim of improving
their representation in Earth system models and increase our ability to understand and project global
