Project

Development of a dynamic model linking spatial-temporal trends in climate variability to forest fire regimes in order to predict future behaviour of Canadian Boreal wildfires
Develop a dynamic model that simulates the effects of climate change on forest fires in Canada. The purpose is to predict future forest fire behavior on a large spatial scale, and over the course of many decades.
