Synopsis

This describes a comparison of rainfall observations as taken at the Victoria College on the Canadian standard rain gauge of 3.57 inch diameter, and the standard U. S. 8 inch gauge, and a similar comparison made at Seattle Weather Bureau. The results appear to show that the small gauge records more rainfall than the larger gauge, but the difference is less during windy weather. No cause for this difference is given at the present time. It is also pointed out that the cedar stick causes a displacement of .01 inch per inch in the 8 inch gauge.
