Abstract : In this paper we consider an alternative approach based on the measurements of a Dual-Beam Spectropluviometer (DBS), in Palaiseau (France). This instrument, described elsewhere (Verrier et al., 2011), provides measurements of diameter, fall speed and time of arrival of raindrops. The latter data can therefore be used to compute simultaneous rain rates and reflectivity factors that can be compared without instrument-to-instrument discrepancy.
