Instruments - active

At CESAR a suite of instruments is operated (semi-)continuously on the ground and in the tower. Here we list instruments presently located in Cabauw whether or not online. Additional information for the instruments is provided in a separate data-sheet (when available). In the table the instruments are listed alphabetical by full name.

Instrument details are also available under the menu option 'agenda | planner'.
