A test was conducted at Eglin AFB, Florida in the Fall of 1972 to verify rainfall rates as determined from the activation patterns of seismic and acoustic intrusion sensors. Sensor activations were recorded, analyzed, and compared with rainfall rates as determined from recording rain gauges collocated with the sensor strings. Useful comparison data were obtained on nine tests, as definite sensor activation patterns were correlated with various rainfall rates. Scatter diagrams were prepared and analyzed to summarize the sensor activation rainfall rate comparison.
