CoCoRaHS-report rainfall

Post  Josh on 9/3/2011, 1:25 pm

I signed up to participate and be a rain gauge reporter and thought someone else might be interested too. This came in a e-mail to the local Master Gardeners, but anyone can join and participate and take the training.

CoCoRaHS

Are you aware of the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS)?
http://www.cocorahs.org/Anyone who's interested in helping measure and report precipitation can help. Many Master Gardeners in Colorado and in other parts of the country have found out about CoCoRaHS and joined the effort. Master Gardeners make great volunteers as they know the importance of rainfall and also appreciate the value of volunteerism. We started CoCoRaHS in 1998 here at Colorado State University after our community experienced an extreme and devastating local flash flood. We now have nearly 15,000 active volunteers, and CoCoRaHS has grown to become the largest source of reliable daily precipitation data in the U.S. The data are used every day by National Weather Service, media, USDA, teachers and researchers and many other organizations.

Last year we started a project to develop instructional resources for Master Gardeners to improve their understanding of climate -- climate controls, seasonal cycles, averages, extreme events, storm tracks and much more. We recently completed these materials and field tested them via Webinars and face to face presentations to several county Master Gardener groups in Colorado. This "Climate Resources Guide for Master Gardeners" is now
available in the form of an on-line slide show. It introduces elements of large scale and local climate important to gardeners. An overview of climate patterns and differences are shown. Links to many regional and local weather and climate resources are provided. Topics include: Climate & Gardening, Sunshine, Temperature,
Humidity and Dew Point, Precipitation, Wind, Evapotran- spiration, Climate Resources, Climate Change and CoCo-RaHS. This climate resource guide is generalized so that it can be used anywhere in the country (although some
features maybe more relevant to Colorado).

We are looking for more rain gauge volunteers, too. Master Gardeners can consider being rain gauge reporters, to do so-please join CoCoRaHS. We also have a rain gauge program for schools. The contact for that project is Noah Newman (nnewman@atmos.colostate.edu).

Cool idea but I would have nothing to do until November! Have fun with it.
