Trois-Rivieres Parsivel Disdrometer Data

This dataset contains raw data from an OTT Parsivel laser disdrometer that was temporarily installed at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) campus from December 2021 to April 2022 to support the Winter Precipitation Type Research Multi-Scale Experiment (WINTRE-MIX). The instrument provides histograms of hydrometeor size and fallspeed. The site sits in the St. Lawrence River Valley. Several other sites also collected Parsivel data during WINTRE-MIX.
