Abstract : Raindrop size distributions are presented in a tabular form for 2660 samples of one cubic meter each. These were obtained from a drop camera on the Majuro Atoll of the Marshall Islands during the period of March 11, 1959 through April 29, 1960. For each of the samples, certain parameters calculated from the distribution are reported. These include rainfall rate, radar reflectivity, liquid water content, attenuation cross-section, median volume diameter, and the total number of drops. Thirty-four average distributions for various rainfall rates are also reported.
