A recording type rain gauge

  1. produces a mass curve of rainfall
  2. records the cumulative rain
  3. is sometimes called integrating rain gauge or continuous rain gauge
  4. all the above. 

Answer - d. all the above

A recording type rain gauge produces a mass curve of rainfall, records the cumulative rain and is sometimes called an integrating rain gauge or continuous rain gauge.

Solution

A recording type rain gauge has the following features:

  • A permanent, automatic record of the rainfall is provided by the recording rain gauge.
  • On graph paper, the total amount of rainfall is directly recorded.
  • It records cumulative rainfall and hence is sometimes referred to as integrating rain gauge or continuous rain gauge.
  • It gives a plot of cumulative rainfall vs time (mass curve)
