Development of a state rainguage network
Keywords:Weather Modification Research, Weather Modification Operations
AbstractStatewide raingauge networks are of great benefit, not only to weather modification projects, but also to the many state agencies which are directly and indirectly involved with the natural resource of water. In South Dakota, where a major portion of the annual precipitation occurs in the form of localized convective showers and thunderstorms during the spring and summer months, it is necessary to employ a large scale network of raingauges to accurately map precipitation events. The rapid and timely collection of data, also a concern to many South Dakota agencies, can a|so best be accomplished by a properly organized raingauge network. Because the task of developing and operating a large network of raingauges can become quite complex and timeconsuming, we believe that it will be helpful to examine several aspects of the South Dakota network and how they evolved....
