NCAR/EOL Mobile Parsivel Disdrometer Data


This data set contains drop-size distribution measurements in nocturnal convection from two mobile Parsivel optical disdrometers deployed during several PECAN IOPs. They were typically sited within the dual-Doppler coverage of the PECAN radar network and close to mobile radars with dual-polarization capability. Data are available for 12 and 24-26 June and 1, 2, 6, 9, 11, 13, and 15 July 2015. These data are in the standard Parsivel comma-delimited ASCII format.
