The OTT Parsivel² is a modern laser disdrometer for comprehensive measurement of all precipitation types. The Parsivel² captures both the size and speed of falling particles, classifying them into one of 32 separate size and velocity classes. The raw data are used to calculate the type, amount, intensity and kinetic energy of the precipitation, the visibility in the precipitation, and the equivalent radar reflectivity

Markets:

  • Flow and Discharge
  • Flood Warning
  • HydroMet

Benefits

Direct and simultaneous physical measuring principle of hydrometeors

The Parsivel² captures both the size and speed of falling particles by applied laser extinction method.
