The U.S. Department of Energy's Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program operates highly-instrumented Cloud and Radiation Testbed (CART) sites in Oklahoma, Alaska, and the Tropical Western Pacific Ocean. A primary objective of ARM is to understand in detail how clouds affect atmospheric radiation transfer, and consequently climate. Based on several months of data from the CART site in Oklahoma, this report demonstrates how cloud detection by the micro-pulse lidar and the millimeter-wave radar compare.
