Realtime 3D radar composite that covers a wide area over the Netherlands and its direct surroundings. The composite is constructed based on data from Dutch, Belgian and German radars. From the 3D composite, various products are derived, including maximum reflectivity (ZMAX), Vertically Integrated Liquid (VIL), Vertically Integrated Ice (VII) and hail parameters (MEHS and POSH).
