The GPM Ground Validation Two-Dimensional Video Disdrometer (2DVD) HyMeX data was collected during the HYdrological cycle in Mediterranean EXperiment (HyMeX), which provided data on raindrop size and precipitation drop size distribution. The 2DVD measured the size of raindrops and also recorded two side view optical images of each raindrop. Used for in situ measurements of precipitation drop size distribution, this instrument recorded orthogonal image projections of raindrops as they crossed its sensing area and provided velocity and shape of individual raindrops.The HyMeX 2DVD data were collected in France and Italy from September 12, 2012 to November 12, 2012. The data are in ASCII format.
