The author of the MeteOrihuela Project, Pedro José Gómez Cascales, has installed an official Hellmann rain gauge at CEIP Sagrados Corazones de Redován. This completes the installation of a complete meteorological observatory in the municipality, since last March it installed a quality meteorological station, in order to reliably measure variables such as temperature, humidity, speed and direction of the wind , Dewpoint and precipitation.
Pedro José Gómez explains that although the State Meteorological Agency does not homologate this meteorological station or others of the market, since it owns its own equipment and is not commercialized, if it certifies the precipitation measures with the measuring instrument. Looking back, it is verified that only records of rain were recorded in Redován from 1972 to 1979, there are many gaps in the way, resulting in the lack of continuity of the data. Now MeteOrihuela wants to return to resume this activity, in a city where it has many followers.
In addition, this gadget is added to the teaching and learning tasks aimed at the students of the school, where they can check how the rain is measured correctly. All this has been possible thanks to the collaboration of the director of the center: Francisco Manzanares; His head of studies Amparo Puertas; His concierge Antonio Albertus; And professors like Adolfo Arronis.
