We choosed five places from our region. Weused data from our meteorological station and also from Czech hydrometeorological institute (ČHMÚ). We counted average quantity of precipitation from every month and compared them to average data from other places. We used data from March 2017 to March 2018. We replaced data from summer holiday from our station, because we weren’t able to measure them. Then we used data from meteorological station in our town Otrokovice.


Hello !
Congratulation for your work and the presentation of your report.
However, we have few questions :
How have you measured the quantity of precipitation in your station ? You said you used a hydrometer? How often did you make measurement? Can you precise your method ? Did you also used a rain gauge ?
thank you for your kind words. We'd like to answer your questions.
Yes, we measured quantity of precipitation in our station and we used rain gauge. We measured once a day at the same time within one hour.
However, we did a mistake. We used only rain gauge, but our translation was wrong.

Hi, Congratulations on your work. I was wondering how far apart were the 5 places.
Hi, thanks for your feedback!
So, you were wondering how far apart are the places we have chosen. The distances were between 9.5 kilometers and 16.5 kilometers. We live in a republic that is not soo big. So the distances between places are maybe a little bit smaller than you expected.
