Sixteen tipping bucket rain gauge pairs were deployed alongside each Autonomous Parsivel Unit (APU) during the Mid-latitude Continental Convective Cloud Experiment (MC3E) in northern Oklahoma. Along with the disdrometers, these rain gauges provided an additional means for directly measuring rainfall during the MC3E campaign. Two different models of these rain gauges, which are manufactured by ... MetOne Instruments, Inc., were used during MC3E. The Model 380 gauges have a 30.5 cm diameter catchment funnel and a resolution of 0.2 mm of liquid water for each tip. The Model 370 gauges have a 20.3 cm diameter catchment funnel and a resolution of 0.01 inches of liquid water for each tip. The 0.2 mm resolution rain gauges were sited alongside APU01,02,10-16, whereas the 0.01 inches resolution rain gauges were sited alongside APU03-08. The data for each rain gauge was collected at 1-minute intervals. Data was collected from 22 April 2011 through 06 June 2011.
