Abstract : Raindrop size distributions are presented in a tabular form for 1703 samples of one cubic meter each. These were obtained from a drop camera at Corvallis, Oregon during the period of December 19, 1957 through June 28, 1958. 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)
