Details

The HyQuest TB3 Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge incorporates a syphon mechanism to deliver high levels of accuracy across a wide range of rainfall intensities. This rain gauge has 5 tipping bucket capacity options: 0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.5mm, 1.0mm and 0.01 in. The TB3 also offers the choice of bucket materials: a synthetic ceramic coated brass tipping bucket or an injection molded ABS chrome plated tipping bucket, both of which are balanced to +/-0.05 gms.

Each unit consists of a collector funnel with leaf filter, an integrated syphon control mechanism, an outer enclosure with quick release fasteners, and base which houses the tipping bucket mechanism. The rain gauge also includes dual output reed switches with varistor protection that senses the pulse from each tip and logs it in an internal or external data logger. The dual reed switch can also transmit the tipping bucket pulse from the rain gauge to a telemetry system. 

What's Included:
  • (1) TB3 rain gauge
  • (1) Sensor cable, 5m

University of Utah Study Shows Arctic Clouds Sensitive to Air Pollution

A new study showing that Arctic clouds are sensitive to air pollution could pave the way for mitigating future problems. “Weather patterns in the Arctic are changing extraordinarily rapidly,” explained Dr. Timothy Garrett, an atmospheric scientist from the University of Utah, which recently completed the study. “We want to understand why so that we better understand their potential impact on lower latitudes where most of us live.” While scientists know that changes in carbon dioxide levels are the biggest player, they are increasingly realizing that clouds play an important role as well. Prior research has shown that air pollution, also referred to as particulate matter, naturally travels northward.
