The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Southern Great Plains (SGP) Site has been in operation since 1992. This poster provides the AMS community an update on the SGP capabilities. The SGP is comprised of 24 instrumented locations including an extensively instrumented SGP Central Facility (CF) located near Billings, OK. SGP operates instruments for in-situ and remote sensing observations that are made available at no expense to all through the ARM Data Archive. In 2016 SGP added instrumentation improving our ability to capture temperature, winds, and relatively humidity in the boundary layer along with improvements to our Raman Lidar and Aerosol Observing System. Details will be provided regarding current instrumentation, access to the data, and opportunities for scientists to propose instrumentation and field campaigns at the SGP.
