Installation of a drip-based rain gauge on Léxplore
The project in a nutshell
We will install a network of low-cost and small-footprint rain gauges in the city of Lausanne, to characterize the statistical properties of precipations in this area. A dense network is needed to adjust parameters related to the spatial heterogeneity (of the order of 100m) and temporal intermittence (of the order of 2-3 minutes). In this context, the platform is an ideal location for one of these gauges as it will capture the transition area lake/shore where specific convective processes may occur.
