Estimating Palaeofire Danger Indicies

EU Marie Curie CIG FP7 ~ 143,000 euros – PI C Belcher
Project PyroMap aims to provide a linking step between shifts in palaeo climate and charcoal based fire histories by developing an approach to estimate the likelihood of fire, such as fire risk based on climatic drivers alone. The aim being to enable us to develop an understanding of how variatinons in climatic forcings ought to have influenced the likelihood of wildfire events throughout Earth’s history.
