Precipitation variations in a highly instrumented experimented watershed in the Rocky Mountains in Southwestern Alberta Canada are studied and illustrated. The study is pointed towards watershed management practices to evaluate and improve land management on the Eastern slopes of the Rocky mountains for better water yield. Instrumentation began in 1962 and has been in operation since that time. Methods for simplifying the measurement of many factors are described and recommendations for further studies are presented.
