Daily Precipitation Records

Daily Precipitation Records

Daily precipitation records for the University of Michigan Biological Station from 1979 to present.

Data are collected at the University of Michigan Biological Station UV Site with a Belfort weighing gage with a weekly chart. That was the official gauge until the installation of a new official type, an ETI weighing gauge with a Campbell datalogger, in May of 2009. Data from the new instrument are available here: http://nadp.isws.illinois.edu/precip/ where the UMBS Site ID is MI09. Sampling frequency is the same for everyone in the country - once a week, charts are changed on a Tuesday morning. The Resident Biologist still runs both gauges; charts are stored in the Resident Biologist's office. "T" indicates a trace amount of precipitation.
