Their city search box (@ 2014-03-18) accepted Munich

"Muenchen", it also offered to accept German post

effectively relegated Muenchen & München to

Rain Measurements In Germany Are
Most Germans don't realise :
If you don't understand, read the box:else skip it
- "Liters per Quadrat- meter" is
really Milli- meters!
- Ein "Liter pro Quadrat- meter" ist
wirklich ein Millimeter !"
The web ref. for above is
www . berklix . org / weather /
(from French Napoleonic system),
English:Litre; German: Liter.
German public (inc. TV etc)
obscurely & verbosely talk of
"Litres pro Quadrat- meter" of
rain, ignorant that is reduces
mathematically to "Milli-
Metres" ! (One rare Germanic
exception that gets it right: meteoblue in mm, (as
also BBC TV World Service in mm (not
inches) @ 2013-06)). If you don't
understand, get a scientist, engineer
or technical person (of any nationality
inc. German) to explain it to
- 1 litre = 10 cm x 10 cm x
10 cm = 100 mm x 100 mm x 100
- 1 Quadrat- meter = 1
square 2 dimensional flat surface
(not cubic 3 dimensional) = 1 metre x
1 metre = 100 x 100 cm = 1000 mm x
- 1 "Liter pro Quadrat-
Metre" = 1 x ( 100 mm x 100 mm x 100
mm ) / ( 1000 mm x 1000 mm ) = 1 mm
- 2.54 "Liters pro Quadrat-
Metre" = 20 x ( 100 mm x 100 mm x 100
mm ) / ( 1000 mm x 1000 mm ) = 2.54
mm of rain = 1/10 inch of
Any vertical sided receptacle
will do to measure rain in
- eg drinking glass or old
tin can eg a fruit can, "mais" / corn
or baked beans tin. Can be a big
family tin, or a small one, or a
really small tomato sauce tin, or a
spaghetti jar. No, size does Not
matter, just needs to be vertical
inside. (Though a sardine can is no
good: rain may bounce or blow
- One does NOT need
to pour the water out into a
measuring flask & measure or know
the diameter of the receptacle to get
a pointless "Liter per Quadrat-
- Just put a ruler in
vertically or next to the container !
The ruler should not have an end
piece, else subtract length of end
from the reading. A steel ruler is
better than cheap plastic, as
thinner, & displaces negligible
- Do it, & you have
reality - a simple scalar linear
measure - not a foolish volume
divided by area.
- Most drinking glasses
don't have vertical sides, avoid
them, in particular a Bavarian weiss-
bier glass, unless you will do the
math. of reducing "liters per
quadrat Metre" back to milli-
- Even a vertical sided
drinking glass has a small curve at
the base which makes it slightly
- Professionals often use
precision stainless steel funnels,
leading to tubes feeding a narrow
diameter giving more precise vertical
measurement, & housed lower where
it may be warmer & not freeze so
easily. They need to calculate
internally with "liters per
quadrat metre" back to reality :
- A documentary on German TV
from the Zugspitze, showed funnelling
of precipitation into a tube &
measuring inside a sheltered room; Of
course They need to know area of
funnel & volume of rain or melted
snow, but when they calculated the
result & announced in "liters
per quadrat metre" instead of
simpler millimetres, it helped
perpetuate the stupid
- The German public talk in
"liters per Quadrat- Meter" out of
habit & ignorance (Most as in any
country don't understand basic physics ),
misled by their weather broadcasters who
fail to translate verbose & opaque
"Litres per Quadrat- Meter", into
simple Milli- Meters.
- Seeing a tin can with 1 cm of
rain in it speaks plainest, be it in city
or on a farm.
Very few need "Liters per Quadrat-
Kilometre" (not metre ;-) & they
are river & dam flood managers, who
can calculate units.
Foreign eyes notice
- In England we measured
rain in "Inches" (mm now I
- In Germany one would
expect "Centi- Meters" or "Milli-
- On hearing verbose &
opaque "Liters Per Quadrat-
Meter" one first wonders what it
is, & if one should convert to
pints per square foot ? Then one
realises how ridiculous that would be
& how ridiculous "liters Per
Quadrat- Meter" is.
