The end of September saw an new addition to the SALCA team in the shape of a NERC-funded PhD student, Lucy Walker. With a background in geography, GIS, and ecology, Lucy will be investigating the use and application of SALCA for the study of forest carbon dynamics over the next 3 years, under the supervision of Mark Danson and Neil Entwistle at the University of Salford. Since starting in Salford, Lucy has been working on a range of preliminary experiments, as well as getting to grips with the data processing side of things! One of the ongoing experiments, investigating the signal measured by SALCA as trees dry out, began in December - with a festive edge!
