April 26, 2023
On April 24, 2023, Congressman Glenn Ivey (D‐MD) from Maryland’s 4th Congressional District made a visit to the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, MD. At the behest of Dr. Michael Farrar, the director of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction at NCWCP, ARL was invited to participate in a tour and briefing of NCWCP that was conducted that morning for the Congressman. The director of ARL, Dr. Ariel Stein, presented a few slides describing ARL and its work, and at the conclusion of the tour, the Congressman stopped by the ARL Research Car in the NCWCP parking lot to learn about the mobile measurements of greenhouse gases that are part of ARL’s overall research program.
NOAA’s Air Resources Car will be on display for the general public during the University of Maryland’s annual Maryland Day festival on Saturday, April 29, 2023 from 10 am to 4pm at the University of Maryland College Park. ARL and the ARC will be on display at McKeldin Mall as part of the Emergency Preparedness Village. More details on Maryland Day are available here: https://marylandday.umd.edu/events
