National Weather Service rain gauge on Walker Building

The National Weather Service (NWS) in State College uses a rain gauge on top of Walker Building on the University Park campus. Students in Amy Huff’s METEO 440W course designed and created their own rain gauges before comparing their measurements to the NWS gauge. After, the students learned how to write effectively and clearly about the results of their experiments.
