Cabauw

The Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Remote Sensing (CESAR), at Cabauw (near Lopik), the Netherlands, is operated under responsability of KNMI. The site hosts a large number of meteorological and atmospheric remote sensing sensors operated by KNMI, RIVM, TU Delft, ESA, and others, such as (water vapour) radiometers, Sun photometer, 213 meter mast with meteorological sensors, wind profiler, radar, and a Raman Lidar.

On-site contact: Marcel Brinkenberg, KNMI
GNSS contact: Hans van der Marel, TUD/LR/DEOS

Notes

2001-01-15T00:00Z 1097/1 015 -
The stability of the GPS monument is good enough for atmospheric science, but is not suitable for reference frame purposes or geophysical research as the long term stability due to the soil, method of foundation and construction cannot be guarantied.
2001-01-15T00:00Z 1097/1 015 - 2008-01-15T00:00Z 1462/2 015
The official DOMES number 13536M___ was assigned by IERS on 2008-01-11. All RINEX files until 2008-01-15 use the provisional DOMES number 13599M___ .

The excentricities are only rough estimates. Final values need to be determined.

In the RINEX files the marker name 13599M001 is used instead of the DOMES number 13536M001 for historic reasons.

A faulty antenna cable was replaced. There is a gap in the data from 2011-01-21T16:21Z until 2011-01-25T15:00Z.

The mount of the Trimble Zephyr antenna was broken on 26 February 2012 just after 08:00 UTC due to corrosion. The antenna, which was found hanging on the antenna cable, was removed on the 2nd of March 2012. On the 17th of March 2012 a replacement mount and Ashtech Chokering antenna was installed. The original Trimble Zephyr appears not to be working and has been replaced by another antenna type. The new antenna was not installed in the same location: there is a offset and height change after the remount.

The receiver was stopped due to interference problems with the radar mounted on top of the mast.
