Ruisdael Science Day 2018


The Ruisdael Science Day, formerly called CESAR Science Day, was held on the 31st of May 2018 at KNMI. This yearly event aims at bringing together scientists who work within the framework of the Ruisdael project or related science project. In this way we hope to stimulate cooperation between the various disciplines that are represented within Ruisdael. Instrumentalists, data analysts and modellers were encouraged to present their work. The programme of the Ruisdael Science Day 2018 is listed below and links to presentation and posters are included. More than 25 scientists, PhD students and post-docs of the affiliated institutes attended the first Ruisdael Science day.
