Neat! Basically a bell curve - normal distribution. Now you need to correlate the drop size with rate/intensity etc.
Yeah, I have some ideas like that. However, now that I have this part working, I realize that there are some inaccuracies inherent in my methods.
For one thing, the 2 RG11s are about 14 inches or 8 sensor diameters apart, which I think may cause some measuring inconsistencies I saw while watching the clicks come in. So, before it rains tomorrow, I'll move them closer together.
Then there is a potential sampling or measuring bias. Right now, I log the respective counts once a minute. However, that can be somewhere random in between emulated tipper tips, while still counting drops. I'll have to see if I can log on tipper clicks instead of time to minimize that.
And, using the standard we are all used to, the 0.01 tipper, is comparatively so long between tips next to the 0.0001" emulation, I'm not sure how well it would correlate intensity.
I do have a third RG11. I might set it up as a 0.001" tipper for fun...
