The tipping bucket rain gauge can be pole mounted or bolted to a level plate.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
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.

Mining Waste Cleanup Reveals Interesting Lake Dynamics

For the past decade or so, Dr. Bernard Laval , a civil engineer with the University of Northern BC in Canada, has been researching Quesnel Lake , a large, deep lake with unusual water dynamics. This allowed him an unusually high level of insight into much of what makes the lake tick—and when Mount Polley Mine (MPM) experienced a breach in 2014, causing materials to be deposited into Quesnel Lake, he already had a sense of what the lake's waters looked like. “Our work was inspired by a desire to improve holistic understanding of lake function to help with fisheries management by BC Ministry of Environment (BC MOE) and Fisheries and Ocean Canada (DFO),” explains Dr. Laval.

Narragansett Nature: Remote NERR is a leader in salt marsh stressor studies, crab studies and contributions to Rhode Island environmental policies

Unique among the 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS), Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR ) is made up of four islands: Prudence, Patience, Hope and Dyer. Protecting about 4,400 acres of land and water, NBNERR is a great place to see a variety of coastal habitats. There are upland maritime forests, coastal pine barrens, sandy beaches, cobble shorelines, salt marshes and open grasslands. NBNERR also has excellent hiking, fishing, clamming and bird watching. “If you want to see us, though, you’ll need to hop on a ferry,” says Bob Stankelis , NBNERR Reserve Manager. “Or you’ll have to take a boat. We’re not that easy to get to. But to be honest, that’s one of the big things residents here like about it: its remoteness.
