Tom undertook understorey structural surveys, took hemispherical photos (see right), and collected litter samples for the study area in Powelltown. Tom is currently compiling all these datasets. Once completed, Peter and Tom will investigate how the data collected in Powelltown correlates with other independent datasets and thereby what detailed information is contained in the fine-grained data from RISERnet.
The RISERnet network itself in Powelltown has now been taken back to the Burnley campus by Tom. Peter and Tom will set up the network in Burnley to validate the performance of the sensors. They will also try to develop an efficient deployment and maintenance scenario so DELWP can set up and maintain the network in Powelltown in the future.
