Pludix is a multifunctional instrument for monitoring and characterising atmospheric precipitation on the ground with high sensitivity and fast response.

 

PLUDIX main functions are:

Precipitation monitoring

Precipitation type Identification (rain, snow, hail, drizzle..)

Disdrometric function (hydrometeor size distribution identification for drops, snowflakes, hailstones)

Instantaneous rainfall rate measurement

Total rainfall in a given time interval measurements


The knowledge of hydrometeor size distribution (disdrometric function) is crucial in investigating, or forecasting, such events and occurrences as soil erosion and percolation, landslides, evapotranspiration, plant physiology, spring seepage etc., or in several other applications, such as in meteorological radar calibration, in defining reflectivity vs rainfall rate relationships, etc.
