Within the Dutch program Climate for Space (KvR) there is a need for monitoring the structure and transport properties of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). Boundary layer processes have a direct impact on the human environment. The program specifically asks for improved interpretations of observed trace gas concentrations (KvR-ME2 project). More generally, there is a call for monitoring the full atmospheric column over the Netherland of which the atmospheric boundary layer forms the lowest part (KvR-CS2 project). At the Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Research (CESAR) a comprehensive program of atmospheric boundary layer observations is operational.
