End of session for the 2nd GREAT Institute group

For two days, 10 new students trained to take samples in the field to analyze greenhouse gases in the surface waters of the Gambia River. Despite the sometimes sweltering heat on the Fleur de Passion bridge, the whole team was able to exchange ideas and take advantage of the time to gather valuable data on mangroves.

In the coming days, the small team will continue with sampling and initial coring on the Bintang Bolong, one of the largest tributaries of the Gambia River.
