Abstract
Weekly precipitation values from co-located Nipher-shielded and standard Belfort recording rain gages were analyzed for significant differences in volume. The effects of site, precipitation magnitude and precipitation type on the differences were evaluated. In addition, the daily amounts from two sites were analyzed and correlated against concurrent wind speed and temperature measurements in an attempt to elucidate the nature of the variability between the two types of gages.
