Device; Method 1. Select area to survey, working in a rough line, following visible geological or ecological boundaries, moving inland from the shore 2. Record this line using a GPS tracker 3. Along the line, identify changes in surface condition – i.e. sea to beach, grassy to rocky 4. At each change in condition, take a sample over the boundary 5. At each point, determine a sample area 6. The sample area is defined as the area one of us can reach and touch with their hands from a single position. The sample radius will vary according to sectional changes and surface conditions. 7. Mark out the sample area by placing markers around the perimeter, and at the centre, and photograph the marked out area 8. Draw a diagram of the sample area, showing the locations of the markers 9. Measure the size of the sample area, by measuring - and recording on the diagram - the distances between 3 markers. This will be used to scale the photographs. 10. Using our instruments, take a single sample of every surface material within the sample area 11. Only sample materials that can be touched on the surface of the sample area i.e. sample soil only when it is exposed 12. Separate, where possible, each individual material into a sample bag, such that there is one material per bag 13. Label each sample bag 14. Record the sampled materials, in order of how much of the sample area they occupy. Later, an estimate of the percentage of the surface covered by each sample will be made.

Proposal for a Green Roof Research Centre Device; Programme

- To develop an alternative green roof system to the standard sedum blanket approach - To try to retain the advantages of sedum roofs – lightweight, low maintenance whilst improving upon its limitations (Poor aesthetics, poor thermal qualities, poor water retention and no ecological benefits or biodiversity) - Therefore, the researchers will be studying the following factors of different plants, substrates, and systems: Aesthetic value, thermal qualities, water retention/run-off and moisture balance, structural implications, maintenance and biodiversity - To do this, test roofs and fields will be created across the site, taking advantage of the range of conditions present - The researchers will be trying to use plants and materials native to the site, with a particular focus on creating a more biodiverse system, and one that is more dynamic so that it would be able to change as the landscape on the ground does
