GPM Ground Validation NASA EPFL-LTE Parsivel DSD Data Lausanne, Switzerland V1

The GPM Ground Validation NASA EPFL-LTE Parsivel DSD Data Lausanne, Switzerland dataset consists of a network of 16 Parsivel disdrometers deployed on the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) campus in Lausanne, Switzerland for about 16 months from March 2009 to July 2010. The distribution of the disdrometers was to cover a typical operational radar pixel (about 1x1 km2). Since all the stations were not deployed at the same time, additional data are available from November 2008 to September 2010. The dataset also consists of a list of precipitation events that occurred throughout the study period. There are two types of data, raw data and filtered volumic drop size distribution data. These data are in ASCII (.dat, .txt) format that are compressed into .gz files.
