Promotor: Alexander Yarovoy, Herman Russchenberg, Oleg Krasnov

Themes: Radar for Remote Sensing and Targets Characterization, Radar technology


Albert Oude Nijhuis is a PhD candidate at Delft University of Technology (January 2013 - Now).

He received his MSc degree in Meteorology and Physical Oceanography at the University of Utrecht in 2012.

He worked as a satellite remote sensing researcher at the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute (KNMI).

He worked on improvements for the OMI totale ozone column DOAS technique and for the ISOTROP project on satellite retrieval error estimation of e.g. tropospheric NO2 for the new generation of European Sentinel research satellites.

In January 2013 he started as a PhD candidate at TUD, working on new retrieval methods for wind and turbulence parameters by using radar and lidar observations.

Public Code Projects:

  • EDRLIB  - A Python Module with functions that are necessary to calculate the Eddy Dissipation Rate (EDR) with different methods, based on a sequence of velocities.
  • Zephyros - Zephyros is a radar software package (under development) for wind/EDR simulation and retrieval.
  • CEWE - CEWE is a tool for comparison of massive data. CEWE stands for comparison of everything with everything.
  • TARA CEWE - On-line summary statistics of TARA radar and meteorological data from the Cabauw meteorological supersite.

Research interests

  • Turbulence modelling
