Understanding weather data collection and the methods is essential to sharing and using weather data. Precipitation is one of the most important and also one of the hardest to deal with. Very good discussion on the precipitation collection.

Up until now, I figured that rain collection gauge in my back yard was gospel. I had no idea what was inside of the little plastic casing. Now that I know what is inside and how it works (tipping bucket), I can assign some truth to the data being recorded on my station console and computer. I recently went out into the rain to assess the size of the rain-drops falling near the rain gauge, just to experience some of what I learned in this module. I make sure to check wind speed when checking through the precipitation collection log. I also made sure that my collector is centrally located away from surrounding vegetation, buildings and anything that might cause a thermal anomaly near the device. This was very educational for the course and my own practical applications!

Excelente curso. Explica los aspectos esenciales a tomar cuenta respecto al manejo de los datos de los pluviómetros y sus limitaciones.

Good information without being so nerdie that you would need a meteorologist to explain it to you. Moved along evenly, and was very interesting.
