A few snaps from our recent soil sampling campaigns in Ghana and Gabon late last year (2014). Nutrient samples were collected from cores and bulk density samples from soil pits at regular depth intervals down to 2 meters. All samples are now either in transit, or in the Leeds University soil labs for analysis, following the Rainfor standard protocols which will enable pan-tropical comparisons. Detailed soil profiles were also taken from each soil pit, of which we had 2 at each of our 3 field sites in Ghana and 3 field sites in Gabon. A huge thank you to both the Ghana and Gabon field teams for all the hard work!

    Hi from Ghana where I am continuing installation of the 3 forest-savanna transition plots (intensive carbon cycling) with the FORIG team. 3 plots have been established; 1 in the forest dominated part of the transition (remnant forest), 1 in the heart of the transition composing a mix of forest and savanna species and 1 in the savanna dominated area of transition.

    George has completed the construction of the flux tower and is hoping to install the instruments later this month/early in the new year.

    Here are some photos - the tower, the next three are the forest dominated zone, followed... More

  • Flux towerKogyae Strict Wildlife ReserveWest African Forests

    Proposed flux tower site in Kogyae Strict Nature Reserve. Two to three plots will be established within the main footprint of the tower in this transitional forest/guinea savanna zone.
