PhD on evaluating the coastal protection services of coastal ecosystems in Southeastern Australia

PhD position to study the coastal protection services provided by coastal ecosystems in south eastern Australia This project will: 1) employ field techniques to estimate and monitor wave and erosion reduction through vegetated coastal ecosystems, and 2) incorporate remote sensing and land use data to quantify and map the avoided erosion and storm surge reduction services of these ecosystems in south eastern Australia. This project will provide key information for industry project partners and coastal zone managers in coastal risk assessment and management in south eastern Australia. The project will have both heavy field and desk-based (remote sensing) components,...

Summer School on Animal Movement and Remote Sensing 2018

Animal Movement Analysis summer school is offered as a two-week professional training course, that targets students, researchers and conservation practitioners that have collected animal relocation data and want to learn how to analyze these data. Course participants will have the opportunity to apply learned techniques to their own data during the course. Animal movement is critical for maintenance of ecosystem services and biodiversity. The study of complex movement patterns and of the factors that control such patterns is essential to inform conservation research and environmental management. Technological advances have greatly increased our ability to track, study, and manage animal...
