Facility for Ground-based Atmospheric Measurements
The Facility for Ground based Atmospheric Measurements (FGAM) is an integral part of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS), designed for the study of atmospheric processes by the national and international research community. It makes Field observations, Airborne observations, runs and/or works with Atmospheric Observatories and performs Laboratory and Calibration studies. Some recent activities are highlighted in the FGAM brochure 2010.
FGAM Instrument Scientists (ISs) each run a specific instrument(s) to: facilitate non-specialist use; maintain and run equipment; ensure quality of data; and archive data at the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC).
Please note that there are no funds available within FGAM to deploy the instruments.
