A disdrometer is an instrument used to measure the drop size distribution and velocity of falling precipitation. Some disdrometers can distinguish between rain, graupel, and hail.


The uses for disrometers are numerous. They can be used for traffic control, scientific examination, airport observation systems, and hydrology. The latest disdrometers employ microwave or laser technologies. 2D video disdrometers can be used to analyze individual snowflakes.
