CESAR Science Day 2013


The CESAR Science Day was held on the 19th of June 2013 at KNMI. It aims at bringing together scientists who work with CESAR observations. In this way we hope to stimulate cooperation between the various disciplines that are represented within the CESAR consortium. Instrumentalists, data analysts and modellers were encouraged to present their work. The programme of the Science Day 2013 is listed below and links to presentation and posters are included. More than 30 scientists, PhD students and post-docs of the affiliated CESAR institutes visited this day. At the end of the day all agreed that this meeting was very useful, interesting and informative and a CESAR science meeting organized on a yearly basis would be very welcome.
