Requestable NSF Lower Atmospheric Observing Facilities for Scientific Research and Project-based Learning This workshop will introduce participants to the suite of available National Science Foundation (NSF) observational research platforms and services available through the five Lower Atmospheric Observing Facilities (LAOF) partner organizations, and provide a clear roadmap on how to request these facilities in support of scientific field campaigns and educational activities. Facility Managers, experienced users of LAOF, and NSF representatives will provide information, guidance and advice on how to incorporate available instruments and platforms into an experiment design, what steps need to be taken to request one or more of these facilities, and how to maximize the success of a campaign.
