Cwm Nash Geophysical Survey – Day 3

Day 3 of the Cwm Nash Survey saw plenty of resistivity and magnetometer survey undertaken.

Only a few part-grids remaining for tomorrow. Once again we would like to thank the volunteers who came to site today and undertook the survey techniques.

Sam Pamment and members of the Friends of Margam Park came to visit the site this afternoon. Will the weather hold for one last day?

Cwm Nash Geophysical Survey – Day 1

Day 1. What a fantastic start to the Cwm Nash Geophysical Survey (if you’re unfamiliar with the background to this project you can read all about it here).  Despite the freezing temperatures and bracing wind our volunteers were brilliant and soon got to grips with laying out our survey grids using a GPS system and also managed a few grids of high density resistivity survey.

The results are looking good! Our lunch was eaten quickly, trying to get as much shelter out of the wind as we could with the added pleasure of a lovely visit from the particularly interested and knowledgeable landowner. Looking forward to tomorrow!
