Udometer, First of Its Kind in World

 
 
The Korean people, based on the experience gained in astronomy, developed meteorology to actively use it in agricultural production.
The Udometer was invented in the period of the feudal Joson dynasty (1392-1910).
By the old archives, the Soungwan (a government office in charge of astronomical meteorological observation) made a barrel-shaped metallic udometer 40 cm high and 16 cm across in 1441.
A barrel-shaped container on a stand holds rainfall, the amount of which is measured.
Italy measured the amount of rainfall with an instrument first in 1639 and far later set up the system of bringing the amount of rainfall together nationwide.
Korea went about 200 years ahead of Italy in inventing a udometer and using it.
