The Model 6310 Standard Rain and Snow Gauge is an all aluminum rain gauge with a total capacity of 20" of rainfall. The upper portion of the rainfall gauge funnel is cylindrical in shape and is turned to a sharp edge. Rainwater falling into the funnel is delivered into the receiver. The ratio is 10 to 1, so that 1" of rainfall delivers 10" of water to the receiver. The capacity of the receiver is 2" of rainfall. Any excess overflows into the outer chamber so it can be measured after the quantity in the receiver has been recorded and removed. The rainfall gauge can be read to 0.01".
Compared to some other rain and snow gauges, the receiver and funnel can be removed to collect snowfall. Snowfall is collected in the overflow can and melted for measurement with the receiver and dipstick.
A black plexiglass measuring stick with both english and metric markings is included. An optional tripod support is available for these rainfall and snow gauges.
