MSc student James Whitehead presented at the ISAR-7, the International Symposium on Arctic Research conference being held in Tokyo Japan. The presentation was part of a session titled High-Latitude Fires, Arctic Climate, Environment and Health. This was the second time he has presented for the group after completing a similar presentation on his research plan work last Spring.
The presentation focused on summarising a few key findings from his field research on wildfire vulnerability and resilience in the Robson Valley. While unfortunately, James was not able to attend in person, the virtual presentation was a success. The HIFACE session focused on identifying key research directions for a better understanding of high-latitude wildfire moving forward.
