Video & Audio
Throughout the development of the actions of our project we have made some images to assess the monitoring. Select one of the galleries to see its content:
- Timelapse - Weather station installation
⏱️Weather station timelapse 📡🛰️Life Nieblas' team has installed a weather station through which weather patterns are logged and analysed. ✅Results derived from weather data will help us understand how fog behaves in this area and also identify weather patterns and extreme conditions events. Such parameters include: 🧭Wind speed & direction 👁️Visibility 🌧️Rain accumulation ☀️Radiation index 💧Dew point 🌦️Relative humidity 📊Monitoring in-situ will be highly valuable when presentating results and drawing conclusions.
- Spontaneous Vegetation Monitoring
Spontaneous vegetation development will allow us to undertand natural passive development at our restoration site. Here you will learn how to undertake this ecological survey.
- Soil Sampling Methodology
Soil smapling will tell us about characterists found in a particular area in terms physical conditions, fertility (nutrient) status, and chemical properties that affect their suitability as plant growing media. Here you will learn a simple method on how to take soil samples.
- Root Development
Root development monitoring will shade some light into our reforestations development underground. This also allows us to find out more about the impact that different soil profiles may have on particular forests. Here you will learn how to evaluate root systems growth.
- Reforestation Monitoring Methodology
Reforestation monitoring is crucial to ensure that our reforested areas have a healthy development. This also allows us to find out more about the impact that different reforestation methodologies have on particular forests. Here you will learn how to evaluate plant growth.
- Cocoon implementation methodology
In this video, we explain step by step how to install a Cocoon developed by LIFE The Green Link https://thegreenlink.eu/es/inicio/ . This videos is part of Life Nieblas (www.lifenieblas.com) action A4 in regards to dissemination and training for staff and technicians.
- Antonio introduces the meteorological station
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.
- Emilio - AFDS original idea inventor
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.
- How the AFDS works - Gustavo M. Monroy
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.
- AFDS Presentation - Gilberto ITC Coordinator
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.
- CREAF Presetation
Today we introduce our partner CREAF who will be overseeing scientific advice and reforestation monitoring. Vicenç in an environmentalist with an extensive experience in life projects and we have worked together in the past and we are sure he will make an important contribution to Life-Nieblas success.
- Mchinery use and maintenance
As important as capturing water, and often overlooked, is the ground work behind it. Field conditioning and preparation for the reforestation season is a crucial part for an effective strategy in habitat recovery and forest management. . Our colleague Pepe, tool-engineer of the groundwork crew, tells us more about how they use these tools in the field and the importance of safety and maintenance procedures.
