Blogs from the field bring LTER-based research to life!
13 May 2017
Earlier this year, 23 projects were approved for funding via eLTER H2020’s first call for Transnational Access project proposals. Many of these research trips have now taken place, and several of the researchers and site managers involved have written blog posts about their experiences. We’ve teamed up with the US-based SSALTER blogs (Short Stories About Long-Term Research), which provides a great platform for hosting the articles. So far we’ve received stories from:
- Whim, a Scottish bog, scene of a first time encounter with the infamous midges!
- Fruška gora National Park, Serbia, a stunning site that is location for hoverfly research
- Kindla, Sweden, where radiometry measurements were made amid the moss and blueberry-strewn forest floor
- Siptenfelde, Germany, where researchers probed the secrets of an underground aquifer
- Braila Islands, on the Danube River, Romania, where one intrepid social scientist interviewed local people about environmental issues.
