In cooperation with the KNMI and other Dutch Organisations and Universities, TU Delft’s ATMOS group is participating at the Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Research – CESAR.

At Cabauw lots of measurement instruments are situated to continuously observe water in the atmosphere and on the ground, radiation, aerosols, and more. The data acquired is stored and freely accessible for scientific use via the CESAR database.

Near real-time displays of the measurements are also available online:

  • cloud video, cloud radar, ceilometer and more  » link,
  • meteorological tower data like wind, temperature and more » link,
  • CAELI lidar » link,
  • aerosol data » link,
  • IDRA radar »
  • TARA radar »
  • tropospheric emission monitoring internet service »

Here an impression of some real-time displays from CESAR:
