Lee, M.-T., P.-L. Lin, W.-Y. Chang, B. K. Seela, and J. Janapati, 2019: Microphysical characteristics and types of precipitation for different seasons over north Taiwan. J. Meteor. Soc. Japan, 97, 841-865. Abstract with highlights

Plain Language Summary: For Taiwan region, previous studies on raindrop size distribution are confined to the case studies or short-term observations. For the first time, over north Taiwan, by using long-term (10 years) data sets of disdrometer and radars, rain and cloud microphysical characteristics of six seasons (summer, winter, spring, mei-yu, autumn, and typhoon) are illustrated.
