Geography Research Seminar: Dr. Gail Millin-Chalabi (University of Manchester); Radar multi-temporal and multi-sensor approach to characterise peat moorland burn scars
- Radar multi-temporal and multi-sensor approach to characterise peat moorland burn scars and assess their persistence in the Peak District National Park *
Peat moorlands represent a nationally significant carbon store. Wildfires release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and can destroy the seed bank creating ideal conditions for peat erosion and degradation of these fragile landscapes. This research focuses on the Peak District National Park (PDNP) and assesses the use of radar intensity and coherence for peat moorland burn scar characterisation and persistence. This seminar will present the key research findings and plans for their future development through the recently awarded EnviroSAR initiative.
