The PhD is titled “Fanning the flames: past and future links between climate change and fire activity across Northern boreal forests”. The project aims to elucidate the processes and drivers involved in fire-climate interactions in the Siberian and Canadian boreal forests, subsequently to see to what extent climate change is responsible for increases in fire disturbance in different areas, and finally to understand the likely impact of projected climate change on the frequency of future forest fires. Fieldwork is hoped to be carried out in North America – collaborations welcomed.
