Abstract : Raindrop size distributions are presented in a tabular form for 3135 samples of one cubic meter each. These were obtained from a drop camera at Island Beach, New Jersey during the period of October 30, 1960 through May 24, 1962. 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. Average distributions for various rainfall rates and radar reflectivities are also reported. (Author)
