Some images from Nouragues

Here are a few images from our time at the CNRS station at Inselberg, Nouragues.
The type of large, buttressed trees that hold all the carbon. How on earth do you model that trunk??

Obligatory lidar in the canopy shot.

And and Blaise working hard.

Perhaps the biggest hazard in the whole place: HORRIFIC spikes on the palm stems, under their leaves, everywhere. These things are an absolute nightmare. Shouldn't be allowed.

Scan 242. The last one. Slightly blurry, but then that's how we felt I think.
