Agusan del Sur Rainfall data [RI (mm/h), monthly accumulated depth (mm), date]

Requested from DOST by Manuel Tabada at 10:34 AM on Oct 22, 2019.
Purpose: Rain-induced effect on flood occurrences and rain gauge innovation
Date of Coverage: 12/01/2011 - 10/22/2019
Tracking no: #DOST-527425520701

Manuel 10:34 AM, Oct 22, 2019

I am humbly requesting for the Agusan del Sur rainfall data preferably the daily records from period Dec 2011 (if available) up to present. I am aware that the Project NOAH, through its rain gauges, have rainfall data. I am also assuming that maybe older projects initiated by your office contains these information. The said data will provide factual bases for my research regarding rain gauge networks in relation to flood forecasting and my rain gauge innovation as well, which could lead to a more accurate flood risk assessment through GIS and Geosensor installation.
Thank you very much.
