Hi,

I'm having some issues with my rainfall data import from CSV. The information I have is in 5 minute time-steps over several months. When I import it into my rainfall group, it wants to characterize it as rainfall intensity (mm/hr). I want it to be rainfall depth, mm. When I go to select rainfall depth and the units(mm), it tells me that the unit type does not match the unit type for the event. I'm sure this is just a simple fix?

Hello,
In IWCS the rainfall value has to be intensity. You need to convert the volume over to 5 minutes to mm/hour.

Thanks Robert! I thought that may be the case. I have some work to do in Excel.
