PROJECT  IMPLEMENTATION

INCIPIT will develop metrological traceability and calibration methods for non-catching rain gauges.
It is structured in 3 technical work packages (WP), the Impact WP and Management WP.

 WP 1

TECHNICAL

MODELING

Develop an in-depth understanding of all types of non-catching precipitation gauges operating on different physical principles, to identify the measurement influencing input parameters, and to derive a model function for the measurement process for each type of instrument.

 WP 2

TECHNICAL

RAINDROP GENERATOR AND CALIBRATION/TESTS

Develop traceable methods for the calibration of non-catching instruments that are used for liquid atmospheric precipitation measurements. 

 WP 3

TECHNICAL

VALIDATION

test and validate the procedures for the calibration of non-catching precipitation gauges developed in WP1 and WP2 both in the laboratory and in-field, and produce specific guidance for the use of non-catching precipitation gauges, their testing, maintenance and calibration in order to achieve the required accuracy and traceability to SI.
