CESAR Science Day 2015


The CESAR Science Day was held on the 17th of June 2015 at KNMI. This yearly event 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 2015 is listed below and links to presentation and posters are included. More than 25 CESAR scientists, PhD students and post-docs of the affiliated CESAR institutes attended the third CESAR Science day.
