Abstract:

Analysis procedures and some results are reported of the study to determine an adequate sample size for dropsize studies. The variance of rainfall rates in eight cubic meter samples indicates that 90 percent of the time, an accuracy of 6 percent may be expected in calculations of rate. The computer programs have been completed for the study of short period rainfall rates. Frequency curves for a small amount of data are presented. Further data processing is continuing. Raindrop data collections and measurements have been completed. Analysis is continuing of the data from New Jersey and North Carolina. Author
