Weighing type precipitation gage and new radar-based sensor

Weighing type precipitation gage is on the left and new radar-based sensor in on a pole on the right

Detailed Description

The Wolverine Glacier weather station was installed in 1968, and at 3250 ft is the highest elevation long-term weather record on the Kenai Peninsula. On October 19, 2020, USGS scientists upgraded the power system to a Lithium battery bank and installed a radar-based precipitation sensor (Lufft WS-100) to compare with the weighing based precipitation gage. From this angle the weighing type precipitation gage is on the left, and the new radar-based sensor in on the pole on the right. Wolverine Glacier is in the background.
