A different design of a storage precipitation gage is described and pictured. The gage is designed primarily for low altitude where freezing is not a problem. However, an initial charge of antifreeze solution could be used during winter months to insure against freezing and loss of the catch. Where rain gages cannot be attended in isolated locations this design appears to be adequate.Discussion of the gage design is presented by Ashton R. Codd.
