Automatic rainfall gauge installation at Kalimpong

Automatic rainfall gauges (ARGs) and Automatic Weather Stations (AWS) will certainly help us bolster our preparedness against landslides during periods of heavy rain during the monsoons in the future. STH had written to India Meteorological Department, Kolkata regarding installation of these in Kalimpong, their reply is placed below.
Darjeeling/Gangtok already have AWIS and their read out is available here

Good work. I think we need more baseline data for future analysis and predictions. This is a stepping stone into gathering a good scientific understanding of climatic parameters in the region.
