Soil Temperature and Moisture Profiles
For the Ka ARM Zenith Radar (KAZR) data stream, kazrhi.b1 (hi=high sensitivity), produces significant detection mask, corrects reflectivity for gaseous attenuation, and dealiases mean Doppler velocity.
Ceilometer (CEIL): planetary boundary-layer heights
X-Band Scanning ARM Cloud Radar, filtered spectral data, co-polarized mode
AOS humidified nephelometer, harmonized
MFRSR: derived total and aerosol optical depth from 1st Michalsky algorithm
Aerosol Observing System (AOS): cloud condensation nuclei data
Multi-Filter Rotating Shadowband Radiometer (MFRSR): irradiances
CO2 Flux Data: 60m samples
This doppler lidar system provides co-polar and cross polar attenuated backscatter coefficients,signal strength, and doppler velocities in the cloud and in the boundary level, including uncertainties for all parameters. Using the doppler beam swinging DBS technique, and Vertical Azimuthal Display (VAD) this system also provides vertical profiles of horizontal winds.

Fractional cloud cover, clear-sky and all-sky shortwave flux for each of 25 individual SGP facilities.
The ARM CMBE-ATM [Xie, McCoy, Klein et al.] data file contains a best estimate of several selected atmospheric quantities from ACRF observations and NWP analysis data.
Sixty Meter Tower: daily minimum/maximum met data, with times, at 60-m height
AOS: Cloud Condensation Nuclei Counter (Single Column), spectral data
The multifilter rotating shadowband radiometer (MFRSR) takes spectral measurements of direct normal, diffuse horizontal and total horizontal solar irradiances. These measurements are at nominal wavelengths of 415, 500, 615, 673, 870, and 940 nm. The measurements are made at a user-specified time interval, usually about one minute or less. The sampling rate for the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility MFRSRs is 20 seconds. From such measurements, one may infer the atmosphere's optical depth...

The Merged RWP-WACR-ARSCL Cloud Mask and Cloud Type PI Data Product combines the RWP calibrated radar reflectivity data with the WACR-ARSCL dataset to improve cloud mask in precipitating clouds and to provide cloud-type profile classification. WACR-ARSCL cloud profiles during substantial precipitation period where severe attenuation affects accuracy of WACR cloud-top detections were replaced with RWP profiles. The merged RWP-WACR-ARSCL cloud mask is then used to produce cloud-type profile classification. The cloud-type classification includes a total...
