Wind Damage to Forests in a Changing Climate: Impacts and MitigationThis position will be responsible for integrating a range of data (ground-based and remote sensed), computer based tools and new measurements of flow over complex forests in order to develop methods for assessing the impact of different management strategies. Models of forest growth, soil hydrology, wind damage vulnerability, and airflow will be utilized. Particular use will be made of GIS in order to provide a spatial representation of the forest and to integrate models and data in order to allow calculation of the productivity of the forest and the risks of wind damage now and in the future.
Deadline for application: 31st October 2012.For further information please see the attached pdf file below.
