BEGIN seminar – Dr Jan Kropáček

Date: 2 July 2019 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: Forbes room, Irvine Building Title: Remote sensing of environmental change in mountain areas Abstract: The changes in temperature and precipitation patterns and human intervention of different types are changing the face of mountains at an unprecedented speed. Remote sensing provides us with periodic, unbiased information on a global […]

BEGIN seminar – Dr Thiago Silva

Date: 14 May 2019 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: Forbes room, Irvine Building Title: Embracing variability: using remote sensing and spatial data to understand ecosystem function in seasonal ecosystems Abstract: Highly seasonal environments are often characterized by a strong coupling between environmental variation and ecosystem responses, including organism adaptations, plant phenology and productivity, and biogeochemical cycling. This […]

BEGIN seminar – Dr Paul Holloway

Date: 11 June 2019 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: Forbes room, Irvine Building From static to dynamic: Aggregating the conceptualisation of movement data better captures real world and simulated animal-environment relationships. Habitat selection analysis is a widely applied statistical framework used in spatial ecology. Many of the methods used to generate movement and couple it with the […]

Two fully-funded PhD studentships in demography/GIScience

We have two fully-funded PhD opportunities at the cross of demography/GIScience and are looking for candidates for these positions. Both projects will investigate short- and long-term effects of air pollution and extreme weather events on health and mortality, one in the wider context of UK and the second one focusing on ethnic groups in Scotland. […]
