  to generate gauge tippings
WriteDCPTippings() Collects tipping times in Julian dates for
  a given DCP
CalculatePluviographs() Integrates rain volumes within a given time
  interval
WritePluviographs() Write output of CalculatePluviographs()
GenerateAlerts() Responsible for running the simulator logic
  of alert generation
DispatchAlert() Responsible for dispatching a sequence of
  alerts to the user alert zone
