DLR Micro Rain Radar MRR-2 and Parsivel Disdrometer
at Schneefernerhaus (2680 m MSL)

The Micro Rain Radar (MRR-2) is a small low-power vertical-looking Doppler radar operating at 24 GHz. It measures the velocity spectra of falling raindrops. Raindrop size distribution and rain rate are estimated as vertical profiles. A narrow spectra with low fall speeds indicates snow, a broad spectra with higher fall speeds indicates rainfall.
For further information see www.metek.de.

The Parsivel2 optical disdrometer measures size and fall speed of particles with a narrow laser beam. Fall speed and size distribution is used to estimate rain rate and precipitation type.
