  • These daily total precipitation data represent legacy data obtained by SBC LTER from the the Santa Barbara County Flood Control District for several coastal watersheds draining into the Santa Barbara Channel (California, USA). Starting in 2001, SBC also began archive high-frequency data from County stations with active data loggers which are available in other SBC data packages. These data were collected in accordance with current industry standards. The data are contained in 3 tables, for stations with active data loggers and tipping gaguges, active stations with other types of gauges, and inactive stations. Only data collected with tipping gauges and data loggers can be interpolated to to the resolution required by SBC's research objectives, and so only this data table will be updated (annually, at the end of the water year).
