  • Rain gauges (Davis Instruments rain collector with HOBO Event Recorder) were installed at four sites latitudinally along the Eastern Shore, VA to measure instantaneous rainfall. The logger only records when there is a precipitation event (0.2 mm minimum). We calculated daily rain totals and provided only dates with rain. The data represents the time period of 8/9/01 on for Mill, Garg, and Mosq sites and 10/16/01 on for Wach site. The system was down between October 2008 and December 2010. It was replaced by an upgraded system in January 2011 with new Davis tipping-bucket rain gauges and data loggers, and primary responsibility for data collection and processing shifted to VCR/LTER staff. This file will be updated when additional data is downloaded from the rain gauges
