The purpose of this study is to describe rain in terms of raindrop-size distributions and to relate these distributions to the physical processes which affect the growth or evaporation of the raindrops. The immediate significance of the present work is that 1 it contributes to our understanding of the final stage of precipitation growth, and 2 it provides information which is useful in the interpretation of weather radar observations.
