Dan Metcalfe coordinating project in cloud forest in Peru
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. The purpose is to reduce cloud water inputs to a portion of the forest and measure the consequent impacts on water, carbon, nutrients and biodiversity. The experiment is being installed this month, and Dan is making a general call to anybody interested in working within the experiment to contact him.
