Global Water's RG600 Tipping Bucket is a durable weather instrument for monitoring rain rate and total rainfall. With minimal care, the tipping bucket will provide many years of services. All Global Water tipping buckets were designed by the National Weather Service to provide a low-investment, reliable, industrial, tipping bucket rain gauge.

Its simple design assures trouble-free operation, yet provides accurate rainfall measurements. The tipping bucket has an 8" orifice and is shipped complete with mounting brackets and 25 ft. of 2-conductor cable. The tipping bucket sensor mechanism activates a sealed reed switch that produces a contact closure for each 0.01" or 0.2 mm of rainfall. The tipping bucket rain gauge can be pole mounted or bolted to a level plate.

Questions & Answers
Where should this rain gauge be installed?

Install the RG600 in a unobstructed location that is easily accessible for normal cleaning and distant from trees and other sources of debris. The bucket can be installed on a flat level surface or on a mast.

What should I do if my RG600 isn't reading correctly?

If the RG600 isn't reading correctly, the tipping bucket may need to be cleaned. Trapped leaves, bugs and dirt can affect the readings. After cleaning, it is recommended to re-calibrate the tipping bucket.

Desert Weather Extremes Create Plant Winners And Losers

Researchers at Arizona State University, studying in the Chihuahan desert of New Mexico, have made some interesting finds related to ecosystem “tipping points.” The term refers to the points at which areas are changed beyond what is typical for them, practically creating new ecosystems where some life forms dominate and others falter. The scientists approached the issue by setting up 50 different study plots in the desert. These were laid out within the Jornada Basin Long Term Ecological Research site and incorporated gear like tipping bucket rain gauges, data loggers and custom constructions that redirected and cut off water as needed for study treatments.

After 10 Years, Great Lakes Monitoring Program Still Adapting

The public knows much more about Great Lakes coastal wetlands than it did ten years ago.  In those ten years, the information gathered through the Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands Monitoring Program has led to and supported dozens of advances in Great Lakes science while helping nail down the shifting nature of ecosystem health for a vital part of the Great Lakes system. “I probably get one or two requests for information a week,” Don Uzarski, director of the program, told Environmental Monitor. The program’s most recent semi-annual report lists 40 scientific publications using the collected data. In addition, the data has been used in even more restoration projects, graduate theses and presentations.

Fisheries Management Drives Fish Populations Recovery

You might be surprised to hear good news about the world’s oceans. The dominant narrative for years has been that the oceans’ sea life populations are on the brink of collapse. But, according to research Ray Hilborn published in January in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the ocean’s fisheries are bouncing back, provided that they’re well managed. “The bottom line is that if fisheries are managed they are sustainable,” Hilborn, a professor at the University of Washington’s school of aquatic and fisheries sciences, told Environmental Monitor. New evidence of recovery After two decades of recovering fish populations, many of the world’s fisheries are stable or recovering, Hilborn’s research shows.
