Paper Abstract

Acommercial laser rangefinder was used to measure precipitation. The high pulse repetition rate of the rangefinder (600 Hz) together with a fast digitizer (LeCroy with Ethernet) allows to see single snow flakes or water dropletts. The characteristics of the signals were determined to distinguish between fog, rain and snowfall.
