Mapping excursion to Lygra
Combining science and team building, most of the GEco group plus a few guests went on an excursion to the Heathland Centre in August.
Surrounded by coastal heath, our recent PhD Trond Simensen transfers map figures from thought to field pc.
Following up last year's trip to Iškoras in Karasjok, we went on a field trip to the west coast this year. The result was 28 maps, 14 for each of two study sites, at two different scales (1:5000 and 1:20000). In addition to making the maps, the excursion acted as team building, mapping training and harmonisation, and to gain experience with western Norway's vegetation.
The maps will be part of our new PhD student Adam's degree.
