Precipitation Monitoring - TRCA

The network consists of both three-season tipping bucket gauges, which monitor only in the spring, summer and fall months, and 4-season gauges that operate through the winter months as well. Three-season stations are maintained monthly while the four-season gauges are visited quarterly due to different design specifications. Each station is calibrated twice a year in the spring and fall. All precipitation data is recorded as counts per 5 minutes. The number of counts measured during allotted recording interval is then multiplied by the gauges measurement value (0.2mm).
