Cesar Database

Welcome to the Cesar Database webportal.

The CDS webportal provided from 2008 upto 2019 access to the Cesar Database.

The CDS datasets are now distributed via the KNMI DataCentre (KDC)

The 10-minute realtime CDS datasets are distributed via the KNMI FTP server

A list of the CDS datasets with a direct link to their present location in the KDC is provided under the menu option 'Links to datasets'. Here you also can find the Dataset Description Documents (DDD) which are not available from the KDC portal.

Data collected at the Cesar Observatory is made available for the research community and non-commercial use. A wide spectrum of parameters is covered by the measurements at the Cesar Observatory. The observations include e.g. atmospheric state, wind, clouds, aerosols, greenhouse gases, surface and elevated fluxes, hydrology and infra-sound. Also higher order products derived directly or indirectly from the observational data are disseminated.

All data are provided free of charge. However, downloading the data implies that you agree with the Cesar data policy on the use of the data. Some datasets may have restricted access and permission to use these datasets should be obtained from the responsible researcher or provider.

Click on "Introduction" in the menu for a brief description of the CDS data and the download options in the KDC.
