A high elevation rain gauge network, known as the Duke Great Smoky Mountains Rain Gauge Network (Duke GSMRGN), has been collecting rainfall observations since 2007 in the Pigeon River Basin located in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The presentation will focus on the founding, funding, findings, and future of the Duke GSMRGN and their associated fellowships. The findings portion will examine the influence of atmospheric rivers on extreme rainfall events observed by the Duke GSMRGN over an eight period commencing 1 July 2009.
