Location of rain collectors on tussac areas of the Falkland Islands 2015-2016

The dataset describes the locations of rain collectors installed in August/September 2015 in the Falkland Islands for monthly composite rainfall. The data collection, which includes also six tussac tillers and soil moisture at the location of each sampled tussac plant, takes place in each location at the beginning of each month and it is planned over one year. The data will be then used for analysis of isotopes (tussac leaves) and chemistry of precipitation.
