. (2015) and Zagrodnik et al. (2018) the rain PSDs are described using the median volume diameter D o and normalized intercept parameter N w as derived in Testud et al. (2001) . This technique is particularly useful because a given PSD with an approximately gamma distribution can be characterized using only D o and N w . The value of D o is computed from the binned PSDs by determining the two drop size bins in which the cumulative liquid water content reaches 50% and linearly
