More accurate precipitation measurement with the RGCTipping bucket rain gauges suffer from a systematic error dependent on rainfall intensity. At the highest intensity, it can records 10 to 15 % less rainfall, than it should. Since the error is systematic, it can be eliminated by using correction calculation.
In order to perform this, characteristic error curve must be known. This can be determined by calibrating representative number of rain gauges of the selected type. From the calibration data the correction function may be built-up.
MicroStep-MIS has come with a solution of building-in the correction function into the small electronic device called RGC
