Short Name:

Two-Dimensional Video Disdrometer (2DVD) IMPACTS V1

The Two-Dimensional Video Disdrometer (2DVD) 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. These data consist of the size, equivalent diameter, fall speed, oblateness, cross-sectional area of raindrops, particle concentration, total number of drops, total drop concentration, liquid water content, rain rate, reflectivity, and rain event characteristics. Data files are available from January 15, 2020 through February 28, 2020 in ASCII format.
