Remote sensing of rain requires precise knowledge of precipitation microstructure, for a profound understanding of interaction with electromagnetic waves. Whereas equilibrium shapes of raindrops and also photographic laboratory investigations are well known in literature as described e.g. in [1], field measurements of drop shapes are not that common. The 2DVD (Fig. 1) allows such field measurements, with two line scan cameras measuring the contours of front and side view.
