Sampling Errors of Tipping-bucket Rain Gauge Measurements

  title={Sampling Errors of Tipping-bucket Rain Gauge Measurements},
  author={Emad Habib and Witold F. Krajewski and Anton Kruger},
In this study we investigated sampling-related errors of tipping-bucket (TB) rain gauge measurements, focusing on the gauge’s ability to represent the small-scale rainfall temporal variability. We employed a simple TB simulator that used ultra-high-resolution measurements from an experimental optical rain gauge. The simulated observations were used to provide TB rain rate estimates on time scales as low as one minute. The simulation results showed that the TB estimates suffer from significant… CONTINUE READING
