Rising Plate Meter Calibration Effort

Below are links to the protocol that I've put together for the collection of rising plate meter (RPM) data. As I have mentioned to you, my hope is that you'll be able to find time to collect RPM data and calibration clippings at least once a month. Obviously, if you would like to do this more often, please do so.
