Five tapes have been compiled, each containing half-hourly averages of the continuous measurements at the Cabauw field site, together with supplementary data from surrounding observing stations. These tapes are intended to assist in many meteorological or environmental studies.
The contents of the tapes have been described in concise form in a five-page leaflet (Annex). However, for many studies the user wil prefer more background knowledge of the data presented. The present report may then serve as a guide.
Some aspects of the instrumentation and data control have been described elsewhere. For these items duplication is avoided by refering to the other publication. References in the Dutch language, however, will briefly be summarized.
Most symbols as well as the element numbers and the mast positions are defined in the Annex and will therefore not be explained again in the main text.
