The YOUNG Tipping Bucket Rain Gaugemeets the specifications of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The design uses a proven tipping bucket
mechanism for simple and effective rainfall
measurement. The bucket geometry and
material are specially selected for maximum
water release, thereby reducing contamination
Catchment area of 200 cm2 and measurement
resolution of 0.1 mm meet the
recommendations of the WMO. Leveling
screws and bullseye level are built-in for easy
and precise adjustment in the field. Measured
precipitation is discharged through a collection
tube for verification of total rainfall.
Model 52202 is heated for operation in cold
temperatures. An unheated version, 52203, is
available for use in moderate climates.
To discourage birds from perching on
the funnel rim, accessory bird wire assembly
may be attached to the gauge.
