Altitude 3 metres

Estimated Class 3, fails Class 1 and 2 on “Ground covered with natural and low vegetation (<10 cm) representative of the region;”. I have picked an image showing corn or similar instead of later images where more of a margin has been allowed. The enclosure did not prevent that, effect will be in the data. This can be discussed in due course.

UHI, none.

Some fields nearby are covered in plastic film, whole area is unstable. Whether this farm is different is not known. Google Street view at on a road nearby.

When your hear complaints from a South Seas island and other places about sea level, note the altitude at this site and this is food crop-land. It is true there is slight rising, rebound from the last ice age, still rather low.
