Disdrometer Data

The following links take you to charts of the rain data collected in central Oklahoma by the OU 2DVD disdrometer in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. It was and is being funded by the NSF Award, "Improving Microphysics Parameterizations and Quantitative Precipitation Forecast through Optimal Use of Video Disdrometer, Profiler and Polarimetric Radar Observations" (#0608168). This data has been used in several refereed publications and conference presentations/papers. After clicking on one of the links, you'll see a calendar with linked dates - those are the dates for which we have DSD data. Although the data is presented in chart form, we can provide the raw data upon request.


Note: Data collected during the period from January 1 to April 29, 2010 should be taken with caution due to 2DVD miscalibration! Also, data collected from June 5 to November 10, 2013 should be taken with caution for similar reasons!

2DVD was relocated to Grand Mesa (CO) from December 2012 to April 2013 for the winter microphysics experiment.
