|Abstract/Description or Keywords
||These data were collected by the Ministry of Forests and Range as part of hydrology research projects. The precipitation measurements were meant to quantify the amount of water available to contribute to runoff and therefore the timing of the occurrence may not coincide exactly with the precipitation event. In other words, snowfall events are recorded when the snow melts, not when it falls. Also, the rain gauges may not meet Environment Canada standards for wind protection or clearances form surrounding objects.
