Meaningful dual-polarized radar estimations suitable for radar meteorology require a cross-polarization discrimination (XPD) and isolation (XPI) in excess of 30 dB to reach a differential reflectivity accuracy lower than 0.1 dB. A planar dual-polarized patch antenna array featuring low cross-polarization is proposed to meet these requirements...

Velocities derived from X-band radar were compared to depth averaged ADCP measurements in a complex tidal inlet system at Ameland, the Netherlands. Inclusion of depth assimilation and ensemble averaging in radar calculations led to smaller differences between ADCP and radar. The observed differences were clustered and related to water level...

Hazardous whirlwind and tornado events are uncommon in the Netherlands. Though, the phenomenon is more frequently spotted over the last years, where significant damage is reported. In the United States, literature studies suggest that due to the increase of the Earth's surface temperature tornadoes will become more frequent and intense. This...

Monitoring of coastal hydrodynamics over a relatively large spatial extent and a long temporal period is essential to assess the impact of coastline interventions on several functions. An example of a recent coastline intervention is the Sand Engine, a pilot project for optimization of (future) coastline maintenance. This innovative pilot...

The coastal area is a dynamic environment that suffers from human interventions and climate change. This requires extensive research and monitoring of the coastal areas. Measurement systems play a key role in the monitoring. Current velocities are for example often measured to investigate local hydrodynamics. At the moment the ADCP is often used...

A large-scale nourishment known as the Sand Motor has been implemented along the Dutch coast as a Building with Nature solution designed for the upcoming 20 years. Given the long-term period of the project, a combination of in situ measurements and remote sensing techniques are currently in use. An X-band radar system is deployed at the Sand...
