Caribou-Poker Creeks Research Watershed: Hourly Precipitation data, 1988 to Present
Entry ID: BNZ_LTER_Caribou-Poker_Precip

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: Precipitation is measured at many sites within CPCRW using TE525 tipping buckets. These sensors are able to detect .254mm of precipitation and record hourly totals of rainfall or throughfall. It should be noted the tipping buckets within forested sites are subject to clogging by forest debris which can result in under reporting of rain events as well as over reporting upon release of the collected precipitation.

Data is collected from a weather station on the summit of Caribou Peak (2537' / 773m ASL) in the Caribou Poker Creeks Research Watershed. It consists of a 10-meter tower with various atmospheric sensors and ground temperature thermistors at eleven different depths
