  • Rain level is recorded at least every thirty minutes at TS/Ph4 and TS/Ph5 (data since 2000). Rain level data are collected using ISCO rain level gages attached to ISCO autosamplers, which also act as dataloggers. We condense these data into daily cumulative rainfall, although hourly rain level data are also available.
