Definition as written by Magpye:
An instrument for catching and measuring the depth of rainfall. There are various kinds and sizes of rain gages, most of which catch the rainfall in a collector or cross-sectional area larger than that of the measuring compartment, so that a given depth of water in the latter represents a considerably smaller depth of rainfall catch.
