Department of Geography and Earth Sciences at the University of North
Carolina at Charlotte (mesas.uncc.edu). The student will develop research

fire modeling can use past and present data to investigate the interactions
between fire, climate, and land-use change over a range of time scales.
Students will join a multi-institution research team and will engage with
an international effort to improve our ability to understand and model fire
in the Earth system.
