PhD Opportunity: Mapping fire impacts in Tasmanian giant Eucalyptus forests using state-of-the-art remote sensing techniques
The Fire Centre is looking for a PhD student to study the uncertainty in the ecological and broader impacts of fires on tall wet eucalypt forests. To understand the impact of these fires on forest trees and carbon emissions we will use a combination of remote sensing and field survey to assess the impacts of fires.
The Fire Centre is a group of transdisciplinary fire researchers, managers and planners. We bring together people working with fire from across Tasmania in order to collaborate and address important fire-related questions in science, community and culture.
By creating a collaborative environment we aim to enhance fire management outcomes and provide links between fire researchers and stakeholders on a local, national and global level.
