Abstract

The parameters of interest include reflectivity factor differential reflectivity, rainfall rates and median volume drop size diameter. The event reported here occurred near Boulder, CO, on June 4, 1983, beginning around 19:50 CDT and lasted around 15 min. In addition to the comparisons, the results demonstrate the importance of drop size sorting due to different fall velocities when comparing radar and ground-based measurements of rainfall. The procedure of accounting for this sorting in the disdrometer measurements also has relevance to the study of transient storm behavior.
