New for 2021, the Professional ‘Orwell’ Copper Rain Gauge brings a touch of the British countryside to your home. Taking its name from the River Orwell – which also inspired the pen name of writer Eric Arthur Blair, better known as George Orwell – this premium quality rain gauge makes for an impressive addition to any garden.
Flowing through picturesque Suffolk and connecting the historic town of Ipswich to the coast, the River Orwell meanders through a landscape brimming with Anglo-Saxon history - a journey taken by rain as it courses back towards the sea.
The Orwell Copper Rain Gauge from ClimeMET provides an extremely accurate and straightforward way to measure the rainfall that can be relied upon for a lifetime.
The rain falls through a defined aperture and into the inner plastic measure; the contents are then measured, normally once a day. Any additional rainfall collected in the large copper body of the rain gauge can be measured by pouring into the supplied measuring jar.
The instrument is made from stout copper sheet with soldered seams, and the solid flat base provides good stability for ground mounting. It has a polished brass rim on the funnel (123mm in diameter) and is supplied with a calibrated plastic measure.
Copper rain gauges are universally used by meteorologists, academics and in commercial applications, and also make an ideal 7th wedding anniversary gift for the theme of copper.
