Campaigns at Cesar Observatory

The Cabauw tower was build in 1972. Up to 2000 it was mainly used by KNMI, but other institutes conducted experiments or routine observations at Cabauw as well. In the course of the years several small and large Campaigns or Intensive Observation Periods had Cabauw as their main observational site.

A list of campaigns and, if available, a link to the project website is provided here.
