Rainfall

Rainfall is measured at the monitoring site using tipping-bucket rain gauges near the outlet of the basin and near the ridge top. One rain gage is installed on a bare open slope. A second rain gage is installed beneath the canopy of recovering vegetation. Each tip of the bucket records 0.2 mm of precipitation. Graphs of rain gage data show the cumulative rainfall since the last gage reset and the 10-minute rainfall intensity.
