The top priority task is to conduct an initial survey of the proposed deployment area. This was carried out today at the site using a simple theodolite, tape and survey stick... backed up with a GPS receiver! During the survey, a number of set positions were used. This photograph shows the theodolite set up at the primary position.
During the surveying work a number of reindeer passed by to see what we were doing!
Looking across the theodolite, there is a nice view of the area where the low-frequency array could possibly be deployed. One of the survey team can be seen holding the 5-metre survey stick.
