Abstract : Raindrop size distributions are presented in a tabular form for 2686 samples of one cubic meter each. These were obtained from a drop camera on Woody Island near Kodiak, Alaska during the period of August 30, 1959 through August 14, 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. Average distributions for various rainfall rates and radar reflectivities are also reported. (Author)
