Autonomous Parsivel Unit (APU) IMPACTS V1

The Autonomous Parsivel Unit (APU) IMPACTS data were collected in support of the Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms (IMPACTS) campaign. The IMPACTS field campaign addressed providing observations critical to understanding the mechanisms of snowband formation, organization, and evolution, examining how the microphysical characteristics and likely growth mechanisms of snow particles vary across snowbands, and improving snowfall remote sensing interpretation and modeling to significantly advance prediction capabilities. This dataset consists of precipitation data including precipitation amount, precipitation rate, reflectivity in Rayleigh regime, liquid water content, drop diameter, and drop concentration. Data are available in ASCII format from January 15, 2020 through February 29, 2020.
