The European Space Agency (ESA) CCI (Climate Change Initiative) project aims to generate a number of essential climate variables (ECVs) using satellite sensors. The CCI Fire Project will deliver new burned area time series over the period 2000-2017 using data from the MERIS instrument and other sensors. At the same time, specific burned area data related to “small fires” which are difficult to capture using moderate resolution images, will be developed for Africa based on data from Sentinel-2.
We seek to hire a post-doctoral fellow responsible for using the new ESA CCI fire products in a global biosphere model, and calculating the impact of fires on the carbon balance of ecosystems at regional and global scale. The position will be hired jointly between LSCE (http://www.lsce.ipsl.fr) and CEFE (http://www.cefe.cnrs.fr/fr/) two research institutes from Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) located near Paris and at Montpellier, respectively for a total duration of three years.
