Out of the ashes

Following the fire on the 17th of January, 2014, Wayne Meyer and Georgia Koerber repaired the burnt instruments. Grant Whiteman and Peter Cale at Calperum station have been a great help; http://www.austlandscapetrust.org.au/projects/riverland/calperum-taylorville.aspx

After replacing wind sentrie’s at 2 and 10 metres, a humidity metre also at 10 metres, and the solar panel they were able to get the tower going again!

The fire provided an opportunity for a change in focus of the research; the shift in carbon and water from live vegetation and it’s regeneration after bushfire.
