[1] Integrated atmospheric water vapor (IWV) estimates from a 15-station-wide network of Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers have been collected continuously since November 1997. The core of this network consists of five stations of the active GPS reference system in the Netherlands. A network with sufficient long baselines was chosen to secure the(More)
[1] An integrated profiling technique (IPT) for the simultaneous retrieval of the atmospheric state parameters temperature, humidity, and liquid water content profiles is assessed. The method combines measurements of a modern, ground-based profiling station equipped with a microwave profiler, cloud radar, and ceilometer, with the closest operational(More)
[1] A 1 year record of fractional cloudiness at 10 min intervals was generated for the Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Research (CESAR) (51°58′N, 4°55′E) using an integrated assessment of five different observational methods. The five methods are based on active as well as passive systems and use either a hemispheric or column remote sensing(More)
This letter shows first results for the application of a recently developed semianalytical cloud retrieval algorithm for the determination of cloud top heights from space. The technique is based on the measurements of the top-of-atmosphere reflectance in the oxygen A-band. The depth of the band depends on the cloud top height and its geometrical thickness.(More)
Forecasting of near surface weather, species transport and dispersion, and the inversion of greenhouse gas transport on the mesoscale relies on the performance of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and land surface scheme in limited area models (e.g. Denning et al., 2008: Gerbig et al., 2008). However, the PBL description in NWP models still has(More)
The Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Research (CESAR) was established in 2002 as a consortium of eight Dutch institutes involved in atmospheric research [1]. The CESAR site is an atmospheric reference site of major importance in the European and medial atmospheric research networks. Observations at CESAR cover a wide spectrum of measurements and(More)
