The Rickly Model 3510 Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge with Siphon is recognized as the standard for measuring rainfall and precipitation in remote and unattended locations. The unit consists of a collector funnel, a stainless steel filter screen and a tipping bucket mechanism. The bucket tips when precipitation of 0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.5mm, 1.0mm or 0.01" has been collected. Each tip is marked by a reed switch closure and can be recorded by data logger or DCP for cellular, radio, or satellite telemetry transmitting.

The Model 3510 is designed for general rainfall measurements. The receiver is WMO & NOAA standard 8” (200mm) in diameter and tipping buckets are available to measure each 0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.5mm, 1.0mm or 0.01" of precipitation. The gauges are supplied with a siphon that allows the rain to flow at a steady rate to the tipping bucket mechanism regardless of rainfall intensity. This provides accurate measurements for a range of 0 to 27" (700mm) per hour. The siphon can be dismantled for routine servicing, and funnel collector comes with a leaf filter.

Watchful Eyes on One of Maine's Crown Jewels: Jordan Pond

Formed by a glacier, Jordan Pond is among Maine's clearest, most beautiful bodies of water. It's also a critical freshwater resource, and watchful eyes are protecting it. EM spoke with Dr. Rachel Fowler, Friends of Acadia's aquatic scientist, about her work monitoring Jordan Pond. A postdoctoral research scientist at the University of Maine, she is a member of a partnership among the National Park Service, the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, and Friends of Acadia that began deploying the Jordan Pond buoy in 2013. Canon provided the initial support for the project. Friends of Acadia is a nonprofit organization that supports different projects in the park.

River Management On a Changing Planet

River management is inherently complex, demanding mastery of constantly dynamic conditions even when the climate is stable. As the climate changes, however, river management will become even more difficult and unpredictable—and old models and techniques are likely to fail more often. Now, researchers from around the world are calling for attention and change to how we manage and model the rivers of the world. Dr. Jonathan Tonkin , a Rutherford Discovery Fellow at New Zealand's University of Canterbury , spoke to EM about why he is arguing that current tools for river management are no longer enough as even historical baseline river ecosystem conditions themselves are changing. Dr.

A Floating Environmental Stewardship Classroom Visits Ohio

This summer a new way to learn about water recreation—and environmental stewardship—paddled into Ohio. With the help of the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG) , the US Environmental Protection Agency's (US EPA's) Urban Waters Program brought the Wilderness Inquiry Canoemobile “floating classroom” to Toledo for a few days. TMACOG Water Quality Planner Sara Guiher spoke to EM about the programming and the experience. “In August of 2018 we spoke with a representative from US EPA Urban Waters,” explains Guiher. “We received funding through them to bring programming to the area focused on urban water resources. The person that we talked to from US EPA suggested Canoemobile, which we had never heard of.
