Time-lapse Topographic Tile Installation

Dr. Paul Brooks took the time to set up this great time-lapse of his University College Dublin team installing some brand new topographic tiles. The tiles are part of Ecostructure experiments to test the ability of eco-engineering enhancements to boost biodiversity. By mimicking the surface complexity found naturally on rocky shores, we can create space for nature on man-made coastal structures. Some of these enhancements are located at Malahide Marina as well as Kilmore Quay in Wexford and along the Welsh Coast including Rhyl, Prestatyn and Milford Haven.
