Can Noun phrases have multiple complements?

Example:

experiments that are feasible and that can also provide useful scientific observations for climate monitoring.

Would the entire sentence be a noun phrase?

  • Yes,but you do not have a complete sentence there: subject verb object. – Lambie Sep 30 '19 at 23:59
  • And it doesn't have multiple 'complements': it has two modifying content clauses. – StoneyB on hiatus Oct 1 '19 at 0:20
  • Anyway: feasible experiments that can also provide etc. is better. – Lambie Oct 1 '19 at 0:27

experiments [that are feasible] and [that can also provide useful scientific observations for climate monitoring].

It's not a sentence but, yes, it is a noun phrase.

The two bracketed elements form a coordination of relative clauses modifying the head noun "experiments".
