BOREAS HYD-09 Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge Data

Summary:

The BOREAS HYD-09 team collected several data sets containing precipitation and streamflow measurements over the BOREAS study areas. These data sets contain the measurements from the tipping bucket rain gauges at the BOREAS NSA and SSA. These measurements were submitted in 15-minute and 1-hour intervals. Only the 15-minute interval data set was loaded into the data base tables. Data were collected from the tipping bucket gauges from mid-April until mid-October in 1994, 1995, and 1996.

A guide document which includes more information about these data sets can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/HYD/h9rgtb94/comp/HYD09_TPBK_RG.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
