Data are provided from 2 types of raingauge, drop-counting and tipping-bucket, at 2 sites. The tipping-bucket raingauge is a common type of gauge, but it has poor resolution of rain rate. Rapid response drop-counting raingauges have been developed at the Chilbolton Observatory to give measurements of every drop rather than every tip of a bucket at high time resolution: 10 seconds. The BADC dataset also includes data from a low-rate drop-counting gauge at Chilbolton which is the same unit but with a larger collector of 387 cm2 rather than the standard 150 cm2 collector. Data from a standard tipping bucket gauge are also provided at each site. The raingauges operate routinely at Chilbolton, England (51.1445°N, 1.4370°W) and Sparsholt, England (51.0879°N, 1.3914°W), 8 km to the south-east of Chilbolton Observatory.
