Monitorização e avaliação da execução e dos resultados do reflorestamento
Este protocolo de monitorização será responsável pela evolução natural do solo e das plântulas, concentrando-se nas análises dos dados de campo que assegurarão a máxima taxa de sobrevivência das árvores com a vantagem de orientar o projeto em certas direções, dependendo dos resultados obtidos à medida que o reflorestamento se realiza.
Finishing off with this ITC series, we talked with our colleague Antonio. He is in charge of the meteorological data logging and analyses which will help us to better understand how the fog behaves in our reforestation area. Our meteo station gathers data every ten minutes keeping us updated in almost a live stream. Furthermore, this data will be made available for the general public soon, so everyone interested in meteorology will be able to access the database and make their own analyses.
The Autonomous Fluid Discharge System (AFDS) is a device that works automatically and does not require of energy supply. Our team is looking into the effectiveness of undertaking reforestation works reducing environmental impact by cutting down on CO2 emissions. Gustavo, hydric systems specialist engineer, explains how the AFDS works.
Emilio, the inventor of the original idea for the AFDS is closely working with ITC in developing and monitoring the systems installed on site for Life Nieblas. As a farmer he had to manage his time between several jobs and challenges that the natural terrain would present him. This clever solutions has gained him not only time but also autonomy and cuts on energy usage which is exactly what we, at Life Nieblas, are working towards.
Today our colleague Gilberto, project coordinator for ITC (Canarian Institute of Technology) explains how the AFDS seeks to overcome some challenges that can't be met by fog water collectors by themselves in certain terrains.
Combining different sustainable technologies can make reforestation activities a highly efficient and autonomous task that will help us deliver with greater success.
Our team has started with some reforestation activities a few days ago.
They tell us about the importance of fog water condensation and what the individual collectors do for the plants.
