Pluvio2 Precipitation Gauge Instrument Micro Article Published

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the Pluvio2 Precipitation Gauge instrument micro article. This can observe rain, snow, sleet, and hail. The Pluvio2 is a weighing precipitation gauge that determines both the rate and amount of precipitation by determining its weight. This is done through measuring electrical signals created by the force of the weight of the collection bucket. The instrument includes filter algorithms to reduce the effects of wind, temperature, and evaporation on measurement accuracy. The Pluvio2 has been used for a variety of purposes including precipitation studies, flood monitoring, and instrument calibration. This micro article provides an overview of the Pluvio2 and its applications to support current and future GHRC dataset publications. The micro article is available at:
