Karoo Researchers at Work

Last week we spent a productive few days doing survey work in and around the Wilgerbos River on Ganora Farm.  Kate’s Masters student, Natalie, and postdoctoral researcher, Simon, were busy with channel surveys, flow measurements and laying sediment trips. I helped Kate with her erosion study on the badlands.  Some of these pictures have already been posted on Facebook as black-and-whites but here they are in colour.  Starting with Kate on the badlands site up above the road to the farm.

Here are Natalie and Brendan surveying the channel at her middle site in the river gorge.
