    How does the storage rain gauge network differ from the EA automatic gauge network?


    The Environment Agency’s storage gauge rainfall network measures precipitation at a daily and/or a monthly time step. Measurements of the amount of precipitation (mm) are captured in storage rain gauges which are mainly read by volunteers usually on a daily basis. The EA also has a network of automatic precipitation gauges that are connected to telemetry and measure precipitation totals every 15 mins.
