The rain gully is used to establish the passage of rain through the tree crowns as basis for determining the throughfall. In contrast to standard rain gauges, the precipitation here is not recorded at specific points but rather integrally over a larger area to take account of the irregularity of the forest canopy. It is made from stainless steel panels. The dimensions and the resultant effective collecting surface may be freely selected by the customer. To ensure quantitative recording of the captured precipitation, it is recommended that it be used in combination with a tipping counter and where necessary collecting vessels for sampling. The measurements can be consistently recorded using a data logger.
