Effect of disdrometer sampling area and time on the precision of precipitation rate measurement
Abstract. Due to the discretized nature of rain, the measurement of a continuous precipitation rate by disdrometers is subject to statistical sampling errors. Here, Monte Carlo simulations are employed to obtain the precision of rain detection and rate as a function of disdrometer collection area and compared with World Meteorological Organization guidelines for a one-minute sample interval and 95 \\% probability. To meet these requirements, simulations suggest that measurements of light raindoi:10.5194/amt-2020-393 fatcat:nnvl5thvljcmjorocjjnsvmehi
