Abstract: Data on rain drop size distribution, collected at Ahmedabad, India, has been analysed to develop empirical model on drop size distribution (DSD). Out of the various DSD models available in literature, analysis has been done for lognormal distribution as it has been reported to be suitable for tropical regions. The empirical model has been derived on the basis of fit parameters evaluated from experimental data. It is observed that data fits well in lognormal distribution for Ahmedabad.
