Precipitation - unvalidated dropsize distribution measured with 2D video disdrometer at 1 minute interval at Cabauw

Unvalidated drop size distributions as measured by a 2D Video Distromenter at the remote sensing site at Cabauw, averaged over 1 minute periods, with diameter classes of 0.10 mm. Drops larger than 6.00 mm and drops with velocities that deviate more than +-40% of the theoretical fall velocities corresponding to the drop diameter are discarded. Data are available from 2008-07-01.
