Particle Size Distribution (PSD) Data

This dataset contains Particle Size Distribution (PSD) data from the High Ice Water Content (HIWC) Radar Study project that took place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. These data were analyzed by CNRS with the same processes used with the SAFIRE Falcon 20 PSD data from the Darwin and Cayenne High Altitude Ice Crystals - High Ice Water Content (HAIC-HIWC) projects. These data are being used for the overall HAIC-HIWC cloud characterization. The data files are in txt format.
