Precipitation Data

Precipitation data is collected in hourly increments averaged over 60 minutes. The instrument we are using is a Campbell Scientific TB4  Bucket with a wind screen. The bucket assembly is installed about 3m away from the station tripod and it's rim is about 1m above ground. It is connected to a CR1000 data logger also from Campbell Scientific. Data is collected every 3-4 days and then transmitted to "home-base". The data is published at the end of every month.

While the Time Series plots show hourly data over an entire month, note that the data set only includes valid data points and that missing data appears as straight lines connecting the last acceptable value with the first one after the gap. It can be downloaded month-by-month with the hourly data stored in an EXCEL file. The data is public domain and no permission is needed for download. We do however kindly ask that you acknowledge the source of the data using the following citation:
