CFI Climate Sentinels Arboretum Parsivel Disdrometer Data

This dataset contains raw data collected from an OTT Parsivel laser disdrometer installed at a climate sentinel (Arboretum) in the Saint Lawrence River Valley. The data is available from 1 Nov 2021 to 31 March 2022 (inclusive) to support the Winter Precipitation Type Research Multi-Scale Experiment (WINTRE-MIX). The instrument provides histograms of hydrometeor size and fallspeed. The Arboretum site is located on the southwestern tip of Montreal Island near the confluence of the Ottawa River and the St. Lawrence River. Several other sites also collected Parsivel data during WINTRE-MIX.
