Short summary
The aim of this study is to retrieve vertical profiles of raindrop size distributions and vertical winds from radar and ground measurements. This is crucial to understand the phenomena acting on the raindrops at small scale during their fall and then to be able to merge measurements of rain at different heights and scales (from radar, rain gauges, satellites etc.). It could also help to improve the treatment of radar data and to better parameterize rain in numerical weather prediction models.
