Language in which you want to receive the document.


This Technical Report describes a method for calibrating rainfall intensity (RI) gauges and the measurement requirements to obtain accurate and compatible data sets from hydro-meteorological networks, as a forerunner to the development of full hydro-meteorological data collection standards.
This Technical Report deals exclusively with catching-type RI gauges (see Clause 3). It concentrates on the generic calibration, performance checking and estimation of uncertainties for RI gauges. It does not cover specific gauge measurement principles, technical characteristics and technology adopted in the design of RI gauges.
