27 May 2016: Visit to Sheepdrove Organic Farm

We will visit Sheepdrove Organic Farm in Lambourn, Berkshire. Sheepdrove Farm is an interesting site from an ecological, hydrological, geomorphological, and land-surface processes perspective. As part of a NERC-funded research project led by Dr. Rafael Rosolem (University of Bristol), hydrometeorological sensors have been installed in the farm to better understand soil moisture and surface energy flux heterogeneity. The field trip will include a visit to different measurement spots. In addition, we will also visit the farm information centre, where a farm ecologist will provide a general talk about farm management practices and local ecology.


Venue on 26 May - Engineer’s House, Bristol, start 9 am

Venue on 27 May - Sheepdrove Organic Farm, back in Bristol before 7 pm
