Assessing tree condition with University of Lancaster

A new research collaboration with the University of Lancaster saw SALCA measuring trees at a test site near Silverdale in Lancashire. Jon Murray, a second year PhD researcher, supervised by Dr Alan Blackburn, is testing the use of TLS for assessing tree condition. He has used a Riegl system so far and now with the help of Mark and Fadal he will test the use of data from the dual-wavelength full-waveform SALCA instrument. Look out for results in the near future.
