Developing a global wildfire taxonomy

This is an advanced data analysis project, requiring extensive hands-on experience with Earth Observation (EO) data from multiple platforms and well-developed IT skills. The project will deploy novel methods to jointly analyse different kinds of EO data (including fire attributes, vegetation and landscape properties, and indicators of settlement patterns) with the goal of developing a top-down global classification of fire regimes.
