A database of stratus cloud droplet (dia<50 μm) size distribution parameter was developed. From the datasets, several parameters are presented, including the total number concentration, effective diameter, mean diameter, standard deviation of the droplet diameter, and liquid water content, as well as the parameters of modified gamma and lognormal distributions. The appropriateness of common assumptions used in remote sensing of cloud droplet size distribution is discussed.
