Disdrometers: APU Parsivel at Texas A&M University

Disdrometer Data Collaboration with Texas A&M University

The GPM Precipitation Research Facility (PRF) has deployed a number of gauge networks for studying the spatial temporal variation of precipitation, and to provide validation to radar and disdrometer precipitation rate estimates. Recently (April 2019), we partnered with Atmospheric Sciences at Texas A&M in an effort to obtain previously unavailable drop size distribution (DSD) observations in southeast Texas.
