SEPA work in partnership with the Met Office to oversee a network of volunteer rainfall observers spread across Scotland. Scotland has a very complex and variable climate and our understanding of it is increasing all the time thanks to observers taking part in this and similar schemes; a tradition that goes back as far as the 17th Century.
The Rainfall Observers scheme is open to any person, school or organisation that observes rainfall or wants to start rainfall observing. Simply register and then start entering your data. It makes a great, educational project to run with school children!
