The SBU Parsivel IMPACTS dataset consists of precipitation data collected by the Parsivel disdrometer in support of the Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms (IMPACTS) field campaign. IMPACTS was a three-year sequence of winter season deployments conducted to study snowstorms over the U.S Atlantic Coast (2020-2022). The campaign aimed to (1) Provide observations critical to understanding the mechanisms of snowband formation, organization, and evolution; (2) Examine how the microphysical characteristics and likely growth mechanisms of snow particles vary across snowbands; and (3) Improve snowfall remote sensing interpretation and modeling to significantly advance prediction capabilities. The Parsivel disdrometer data include particle size distribution, fall speed, radar reflectivity and precipitation rate. The dataset files are available in netCDF-3 format from January 1 through February 27, 2020.
