The Ruisdael Observatory is a national atmospheric measurement platform which combines in-situ measurement and advanced ground-based remote sensing at multiple locations in the Netherlands. The backbone of Ruisdael Observatory consists of four fixed state of the art equipped measurement stations in Cabauw, the city of Rotterdam, the forested area of Loobos and the coastal area around Lutjewad. The observatory also operates mobile platforms including a wide variety of sensors and remote sensing devices.
Early 2022, the Amsterdam Atmospheric Monitoring Supersite and Veenkampen station joined the Ruisdael Observatory. Both sites are equipped with state-of-the-art measurement equipment and complement the original stations of the Ruisdael Observatory.
