UAH Parsivel Disdrometer Data

This data set contains surface raindrop size distribution data from the two Parsivel disdrometers that the University of Alabama-Huntsville deployed at the UAH berm site for the VORTEX-SE 2016 campaign. One was deployed inside a fence to avoid wind effects on the drop data while the other was deployed outside the fence for reference. The data are available for all VORTEX-SE 2016 field season IOPs. These data are in a comma-delimited ASCII format.
