COW Parsivel Disdrometer Data

This dataset contains data from a Parsivel optical disdrometer deployed at Sorel in support of the WINTRE-MIX field campaign. The instrument provides precipitation intensity and the drop-size distribution spectrum. The instrument was deployed with the Microwave Rain Radar at the COW radar site and was only operational during IOPs. The instrument was continuously running between 1 February to 15 March 2022, but no data were collected between 16 February to 2 March 2022 due to a loose cable.
