Out of the Ashes

Since the fire on the 17th of January, Wayne Meyer and Georgia Koerber have been repairing the burnt instrumentsP1030449. Grant Whiteman and Peter Cale at Calperum station have been a great help; http://www.austlandscapetrust.org.au/projects/riverland/calperum-taylorville.aspx

We have replaced wind sentrie’s at 2 and 10 metres and a humidity metre also at 10 metres. We replaced the solar panel and were able to get the tower going again!101_0691

We have a shift in focus of or research now; the shift in carbon and water from live vegetation and it’s regeneration after bushfire.DSC00908
