Mercy Ndalila

Mercy’s research involves a geospatial analysis of the January 2013 Forcett-Dunalley fire that burnt approximately 26,000 hectares in south east Tasmania. By examining geographic patterns of fire severity in different forest types using remote sensing techniques and analyse landscape factors governing this severity, Mercy will be able to provide fire managers with new information about extreme fire behaviour.

This research involves a geospatial analysis of the January 2013 Forcett-Dunalley fire that burnt approximately 26,000 hectares of forest-dominated landscapes in SE Tasmania. It will examine geographic patterns of fire severity in different forest types using remote sensing techniques and analyse landscape factors governing this severity.
