Openness rating:

Rainfall sensors are currently deployed around the Burrishoole catchment to ensure maximum spatial coverage of rainfall variation. Data measured are mm of rain. Data coverage is for Furnace Newport Co. Mayo. Rainfall data collected since 1996. Rainfall data has been collected via tipping buckets which are used for the observations and measurements of rainfall. Data collected supports Met Eireann climate and meteorology analysis of rain over time periods. Data collected by the Marine Institute Newport Facility team in association with Met Eireann, Irelands meteorological service. Data has been collected regularly (e.g. daily) and is 100% complete for the period since the rainfall gauges deployed.
