0.1 mm tipping bucket gauge w/ picture
« on: November 03, 2016, 02:55:22 PM »
While looking at Google rain gauge images, I ran across this:



from http://www.mse-bg.com/old/Project%20Rain2%20en.html

Apparently a Bulgarian tipping bucket with claimed 0.1 mm or 0.004" resolution.

The sensor`s MS&E PIV-4 contact device is optoelectronic, which allows achieving a resolution of 0.1 mm. The presence of a heater under the receiving surface and the electronic thermostat control enable measurement of solid precipitation - snow and hail.
