A ground measurement protocol is being developed to provide concise information about standard field measurement methods available for the environmental variables and precautions to be taken while sampling. The information provided in the protocol would be sourced from experts in related fields.
Canopy Cover Measurement Protocol
Forest Canopy Cover campaign was promoted throughout Wales to build up field datasets for the tree canopy cover, in the summer of 2019. Mobile based app called GLAMA has been tested against the standard methods. Based on the findings of this study a robust protocol has been proposed for the canopy cover measurement in different types and densities of forests. The proposed protocol can be found here.
