Job: PhD Position in High Latitude Carbon-Fire Feedbacks - Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Description

Little is known about the carbon fluxes (CO2 and CH4) during and after tundra fires. The PhD candidate will visit burned tundra sites to estimate direct carbon losses due to fire and the longer-term impact of fire on the carbon balance of tundra ecosystems, including post-fire degradation and recovery of underlying permafrost. Field measurements will be combined with satellite imagery for up-scaling, and with predictions of future climate and lightning to better understand the vulnerability of high latitude carbon stocks to fire.
