New researcher joins the SALCA team

The Salford SALCA team has a new member, Fadal Sasse, who joins as a PhD researcher from Libya. Fadal, also know as Sasse, has an MSc in Environmental Science from the Diponegoro University, Semarang, Indonesia, where his thesis was on forest community structure in the Sungai Langat Forest Reserve, Selangor. Sasse will undertake research to better characterize forest structure and species composition using terrestrial laser scanners, initially continuing to work at UK test sites, and possibly developing the work in tropical forest environments. He will use the SALCA instrument and focus on the spectral information available from the dual-wavelength instrument, and aim to combine this with measurements from other TLS measuring in visible wavelengths.
