Starting from the correlation function and neglecting other spectrum broadening mechanisms, an analytical expression for Doppler spectrum is related to the drop's terminal velocity and size distribution. The derivation does not require drop size distribution to be homogeneous. This generalized expression reduces to previously derived expression if drop size distribution is uniform.
