OceanRAINM number concentration PSDs (m3 mm1) and OceanRAINR raw PSDs along with and precipitation microphysics and radarrelated parameters. Both files contain 37 parameters in temporally discontinuous 1minresolution for precipitation events only. The data source discriminates between measured (NAV, MET, ODM), observed (SYN) and calculated parameters (calculated). Note, that column 38165 store the 128 values for the PSDs. The first lines in the OceanRAINM files contain a header providing the logscale 128 bin size centers in mm.
