I spent today in the field collecting the last of my data. It was tiring but nice to stretch my legs. Embedded exercise is one good thing about field work. I completed what I hope was a fairly systematic transect of the study area. I took points at the start and end of each wall, three slope measurements for each, as well as height and width. I got rained on a few times; at this point these periodic showers don’t faze me at all. I only had minor technical difficulties which I was able to resolve relatively easily. I feel like I’m much more proficient with the equipment than when I started. That process took up most of my day but the data I gathered will be worth it. Data crunching and importing happened at home after I got back. Nothing too eventful.
