Description
Precipitation samples are collected with wet/dry collectors or
bulk samplers. The wet/dry collector is the preferred
precipitation sampler and consists of a bucket that is open only
during periods of wet (rainfall, snow, etc.)
precipitation. During dry periods the sample bucket is covered,
thus excluding dry-fall precipitation from the sample.
