Dan Metcalfe coordinating project in cloud forest in Peru

Cloud curtain

NBC News recently covered the ongoing activities associated with a VR-Uforsk funded project coordinated by Dr Dan Metcalfe. The project is installing a 30 metres high, 40 metres wide curtain in the middle of pristine cloud forest in Peru.
