## Non recording rain gauges collect the rain which is directly measured by means of graduated cylinders in centimetres of water depth.

Solution

The non recording rain gauges only collect the rain by means of a graduated cylinder. Non recording rain gauges only measure the total amount of rainfall that occurred in a specified time, in terms of depth of water. This kind of rain gauge is unable to tell you when the rain began, when it ceased, the intensity of rainfall and the variation of intensity over the course of the storm. Symon’s rain gauge is the standard non recording rain gauge adopted in India.
