Construction of a Disdrometer Prototype and Analysis of Rainfall Interarrival Times
Disdrometers are devices used in many disciplines which determine individual raindrop size, location, and arrival time. All disdrometers currently on the market cost around ve thousand dollars or more. The goal of the project was to create an inexpensive disdrometer with a useful degree of precision. Six designs were theorized and one was built. An analysis was then completed on the data collected by this disdrometer. It was determined that the new disdrometer is not yet able to give reliable results, but there is potential for cheaper disdrometers in the future.
