Rainfall data 15-22May2010

As mentioned earlier, STH along with COMPUSET (Darjeeling) have a network of 3 automatic rainfall gauges (ARGs) with which we are keeping a track of the rainfall at Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Kurseong.
Placed above is our first report on the rainfall - this data will be updated weekly.

Comment by Praful Rao
The type of ARG in use for the above measurements is the Wireless Rain Gauge manufactured by Oregon Scientific.
As is known to all of us, weather (and rainfall) in the mountains can differ wildly from place to place which may be the reason for the wide variations above.
