Standard pattern Meteorological Office 5-inch rain gauge in stainless steel, devised by Martin N. Parker of the Meteorological Office’s Engineering Design Services, Beaufort Park, Bracknell, UK, unsigned, 1998. With base and funnel, collecting can and glass bottle.

Simple rain gauges have a horizontal circular aperture of known diameter into for collecting precipitation falling as rain, snow, sleet, drizzle and hail. Networks of these instruments can be used to provide regular measurements to reveal the amount and distribution of precipitation. This rain gauge is made of stainless steel rather than previously traditional copper. It has a cylindrical body with a flat base for stability, a removable collecting can with a wire handle, and a funnel with an accurately turned and bevelled rim. Inside the can a glass bottle collects the water.
